Your undergraduate tuition at A-State is based on a variety of factors including where you live, how many hours you are enrolled in, and which college houses your selected major. In addition to your tuition costs, students pay fees to support campus facilities, equipment, and programs.

Calculating Your Tuition

To calculate your tuition, multiply the tuition per credit hour rate and the required hourly fees by the number of hours you are taking for a given semester. If you meet any of the required term fee or additional fees criteria, add them to your total number.

Course Fees

Please note that your tuition could vary based on fees associated with specific courses. These course fees can range from $5.00 - $255.00 per course.

Identity Compliance Fee

An Identity Compliance Fee of $10.00 per credit hour will be applied to all online courses excluding High School Concurrent courses and those offered in the Online MBA Program.
