DISTANCE EDUCATION / ONLINE COURSE TUITION and FEES

A. Online Tuition Rates (Academic Year 2016-17)

On-Line Undergraduate courses: $199 per credit

On-line Graduate courses: $435 per credit, with exceptions for certain programs such as:

a. ReadOregon reading endorsement courses

b. Master of Arts in Interpreting Studies program, $472 per credit

Online courses have a different tuition rate than campus courses and are NOT included in the Western Promise/Traditional rates. For example, an undergraduate student enrolled in 8 credits of regular classes and a 4 credit online course is charged regular tuition for 8 credits (Western Promise, WUE or other rates, depending on the student’s tuition plan) plus the tuition for 4 credits at the online tuition rate.

If online courses are taken in combination with regular campus courses, then fees for building, incidental, student recreation center, (and health service fee if 6 hours or more) will be assessed for all credit hours combined.

Students who are taking only online courses will not be charged campus fees, but may be charged fees related to that course (such as for materials or supplies).

All WOU course credits will count toward financial aid.

 

B. Contracted Educational Programs / Non-credit programs

Tuition for these programs and courses is specific to the kind of program, contract, or course. See specific program or contact the program administrator for additional information.
