This calculator will estimate tuition and fees for a single term for on-campus programs. There are typically two terms in one academic year.
Credits and course load:
Most courses are worth 3 credits and most programs consider 15 credits (5 courses) a full course load for one term. To estimate the cost of a full course load (5 courses) in one term, you would enter 15 credits in Step 2 above. Check your program of study to confirm the term credit load for your program.
You need to take a minimum of 9 credits to be considered full-time for the purposes of student loans, unless you have been approved through Services to Students with Disabilities to take a reduced course load.
