   Mandatory Fees for Summer 2020

As a result of the decision to move most of the summer 2020 classes online, the structure for mandatory fees has been changed.

  • Some courses that were originally scheduled as face-to-face, on campus courses will be taught online, but synchronously – meaning, you will log on and learn “live” during the same block of time your course was previously scheduled. Students in these courses will pay the same fees they would have paid as a face-to-face student.  
  • Some courses that were originally scheduled as face-to-face, on campus courses will be taught online, but asynchronously – meaning you will not meet at specific times, but will need to meet certain deadlines that your faculty instructor sets. Students in these courses will pay online student fees, plus the Mental Health Fee.  
  • Students registered in courses that were originally scheduled to be online will continue to pay online student fees,. All online classes will be charged the Mental Health Fee in addition to all of the regular online fees. 
  • For more information, please refer to a COVID-19 Updates & Resources publication from April 2, 2020:


The tuition tables in the section below apply to summer 2020 semester only. Although the tuition rate for the summer semester remained the same, the mandatory fees structure was slightly adjusted.
