Tuition & Payment

Students in the Evening & Weekend MBA Program pay for classes on a per-credit basis as the classes are taken. Students pay for credits before the start of each quarter. If your fees from the prior quarter are not paid two weeks prior to web registration for the following quarter, you will have a hold placed on your account and therefore will not be able to register. 

The 2016-2017 tuition rate is $6,441 per 1 credit or $3,221 per .5 credit.

The 2017-2018 tuition rate is $6,683 per 1 credit or $3,341.50 per .5 credit. (starting with the Fall 2017 Quarter)

All payments of tuition and other fees must be paid by the due date indicated on your bill to avoid late fees.  Instructions for how to access your bill can be found here.

Please visit the Student Accounts website for all billing and tuition deadline dates.

There are two ways to pay tuition:
  1. Credit card at the Evening & Weekend MBA Office at Wieboldt Hall
  2. Payment directly to Student Accounts via check or online (debit/credit card) via QuikPay
