Tuition and Fee General Information

A great investment and a great value.

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.
