  • Contact hours for billing purposes will vary and are listed in the class schedule.

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

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.

For cost information on dual and concurrent enrolled high school students, contact Student Services at 231-348-6605.
