Tuition and fees for part-time students are based on the number of classes a student takes and the number of hours each class meets every week. Part-time students have the flexibility to choose a schedule that fits their needs and goals from 2 – 22 hours per week. Most part-time students will take two courses. Sometimes a part-time student will only take one course.
