Students pay tuition and fees for all hours in which they are enrolled.  Tuition and fees charged are based on two factors:  the type of course (On-campus or Virtual College) and the student's residency status.  See in-state tuition requirements for more information.  For example:

  • A Resident student will be charged On-campus tuition and fees for On-campus courses and Virtual College tuition and fees for Virtual College courses.
  • A Non-Resident student will be charged Non-Resident tuition and fees when taking both On-campus and Virtual College courses.  A Non-Resident student taking Virtual College courses only will pay the Virtual College tuition and fees.
  • Students who are residents of Colorado, Missouri, Nebraska, or Oklahoma qualify for the Contiguous State rate for On-campus courses.  A Contiguous State student will be charged Contiguous State tuition and fees when taking both On-campus and Virtual College courses.  A Contiguous State student taking Virtual College courses only will pay the Virtual College tuition and fees.
  • Students who meet eligibility requirements for the Midwest Student Exchange Program (MSEP) qualify for the Contiguous State/MSEP rate for on-campus courses.  An MSEP student will be charged Contiguous State/MSEP tuition and fees when taking both On-campus and Virtual College courses. An MSEP student taking Virtual College courses only will pay the Virtual College tuition and fees. More information can be found at http://www.fhsu.edu/admissions/Midwest-Student-Exchange-Program.

Graduate tuition and fees are assessed based on course enrollment level rather than individual classification. Students will pay graduate tuition and fees for graduate credit courses and undergraduate tuition and fees for undergraduate credit courses. Graduate students enrolled in off-campus MBA classes will pay graduate MBA tuition and fees.

Special fees may be added to select approved courses such as noncredit courses, workshops, conferences, and seminars based on direct and indirect operating costs.

Students who add or process an add/drop together at any time for the semester will have tuition and fees recalculated at the time of each transaction. These transactions may change the fee status of the student for the semester and fees will be assessed accordingly. The student is required to remit payment for additional tuition and fees owed at the time of the transaction in TigerTracks (Online Services tab).If the recalculation results in a refund due to the student, we will process the transaction to the student account.
