For the purposes of financial aid undergraduate students are packaged at the full time COA (12 or more credits per semester); however, 15 or more credits is the same cost and can help a student graduate on time. The COA may be adjusted based on a student’s actual enrollment. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships to request an adjustment if you are enrolled in less than 12 credits.

 

Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) is available to qualifying students from AK, AZ, CA, CO, HI, ID, NV, NM, ND, OR, SD, UT, WA, and WY, and Commonwealth of Northern Marianas Islands.

 

*Tuition & Fees reflect the weighted average cost based on enrollment type (full, ¾, ½ & less than ½ time).
