*Note: All Experiential Learning Portfolio credits are assessed at a rate of $30 per semester hour (unit) earned. This includes credits earned through the professional schools/courses section as well as through the experiential learning essays section. This fee is separate from tuition. A student's assessment fee could vary from $30 to $900, depending on the number of essays submitted and credits earned.
Essays are charged upon credit being awarded, not each time an essay is submitted for review. Payment is due upon receipt and billing. Any essays submitted during the third term or beyond must be accompanied by payment in full.
