How is tuition cost calculated?

Tuition is calculated per contact hour, or the total hours per week of scheduled classroom, lab, and clinical instruction time.

There are various components to calculating your college costs for each semester. Definitions for each component follow the Tuition and Fee Calculator below.  The calculator produces an estimated cost.  Actual costs will be calculated at the time of registration.

  • Nursing Tuition Rate Note:  Students registering for Nursing (NUR) classes are charged these per contact hour tuition rates: $162 in-district; $249 out-of-district; and $314 out-of-state.
  • Dual/Concurrent Tuition Rate Note:  For cost information on dual and concurrent enrolled high school students, contact Student Services at 231-348-6605.
