Access Fee

An access fee will be charged for the following category of courses: Directed Study, Independent Study, Distance Education courses. This fee will be paid above and beyond the flat tuition rate for 12 semester hours and may result in a significant increase in the total tuition billed to the student.

The only exception made for non-payment of this access fee would be if the course to be offered as Directed Study, Independent Study, or in a Distance Education format is specifically mandated for graduation within a major, and has not been offered in the regular schedule within the previous two years. Exceptions for payment of the access fee for these courses will be very limited with each exception being granted on a case-by-case basis.
