The non-refundable administrative fee covers a portion of the many direct costs related to providing instruction
and administrative and academic support services. Off-campus students receive various forms of assistance, such as
library support, toll-free phone numbers, general guidance, network IDs and passwords, and support in coordinating
with other campus units. In addition, a wide range of academic services are provided to the faculty and staff who
teach Academic Outreach courses. Costs for supporting instruction and for developing and promoting new courses are
also partially derived from tuition and fees. However, the Academic Outreach fee does not cover campus services
such as insurance, transportation, etc.
A one-time fee must be paid at the time of application.
The application fees are as follows:
