Enrolled Options Tuition Plan

Some students may not require the full complement of credit-earning options and student services covered under the Comprehensive Tuition Plan. For those students who want or need only to choose certain components of the plan, the College offers the Enrolled Options Tuition Plan. With this approach, as an enrolled student, you are required to pay the Annual Enrollment Tuition and the Technology Services Fee. Payment of this tuition component entitles you to a full year of College services including academic advisement and program planning. You may then choose what College credit-earning methods you require and will be charged for each option as outlined in the Enrolled Options Tuition Plan chart below.

Annual enrollment is paid every 12 months. Students who select the Enrolled Options Tuition Plan benefit from having the same annual enrollment, course tuition and fees for 24 consecutive months from the date of their initial enrollment. This means Enrolled Options students pay the same annual enrollment, course tuition and fees for two years with no increases.
