Course Delivery Fee

Distance education courses carry an additional charge of $35.00 per credit hour. Therefore, a student enrolling in a three-credit course will pay a Course Delivery Fee (CDF)  of $105.00 in addition to course tuition. The CDF is used entirely to support and maintain distance education degree and certificate programs. The fees are periodically reviewed and revised by the University Budget Committee.
