Undergraduate Programs

After paying your initial non-refundable application fee, there are no program-specific costs for undergraduate programs. Simply pay for courses as you register for them. To estimate the total cost for your program, use the course fee calculator to find out your cost for a three-credit course, and multiply that by the number of courses required for your program. For example, a Bachelor of Arts requires 120 credits, or 40 three-credit courses.
