Tuition and Fee General Information
Paying for college is a big financial commitment. At Ohio State, the credentials you earn will be from one of the top public universities in the country and earning your credential online makes it a great value as well as a great investment in your future.
Tuition varies by program and the number of credits you’re enrolled in. Find tuition rates on the registrar’s website. No matter if you are an in-state or out-of-state student, all United States residents and graduate students (international or U.S. residents) enrolled in our distance education courses pay in-state tuition rates. You’ll pay an additional $100 (Ohio residents) or $105 (non-residents) distance fee per term and any program-specific fees. International undergraduate students will also be assessed a $500 fee per term. Graduate international students will not be charged this fee. Site-based fees, such as the recreational fee and COTA bus service, do not apply to distance students.
The table below estimates a total cost for the completion of the degree program, including both university and program-specific fees.
Estimates are based upon the Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene Degree Completion program, which ranges from 30-55 credits depending on transfer credits from previous education or an Associate degree. While it may vary, most students can complete the program in two years or less of full-time study (roughly four semesters) or three to four years of part-time study. Estimates below are based on full-time study for four semesters (about 12-15 credits per semester) to earn around 55 credits (assuming low number of transfer credits). Actual length of time and cost will vary based on transfer credits and full- or part-time status. For more information on the courses and curriculum visit the department’s page. You might also reference the Total Cost Calculation Guide for help in making your own calculations based on your own degree completion plan.
