The student is charged the special part-time tuition rate (for the fall 2014 and spring 2015 semesters, this rate is $408 per credit hour) and financial aid is awarded to offset the difference. Therefore, the net amount charged per credit hour is $85.

Parking Fee: The parking fee for all students is $25 per semester. Early entry high school students may waive this fee if they do not plan to have a vehicle on the campus. 

Technology Fee: The technology fee must be paid and cannot be waived. The fee is based upon the number of credit hours a student is enrolled in for the semester: $36 (.5 - 3.5 credit hours); $74 (4 - 8.5 credit hours); $112 (9 - 11.5 credit hours)

Activities Fee: The activities fee will be waived for early entry high school students enrolled as part-time students (.5 through 11.5 credit hours). Should the early entry high school student enroll as a full-time student (12 credit hours or more) the applicable activities fee will be charged. Part-time early entry high school students will be issued a temporary student ID card for each semester. The temporary ID card will not allow the student to participate in any of the general student activities on campus, however, the student will be able to use the library. 

Should the part-time early entry high school student desire to be eligible to participate in any general student activities, the student must pay the activities fee and a regular student ID card will be issued to the student. The activities fee charged will be based on the number of credit hours of enrollment.
