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.
