Courses and Programs Approved for a Waiver of the Overload Fee

An additional per/credit hour fee will be assesed for enrolled hours that exceed eighteen (18) hours.

Several courses and programs, however, have been approved so that they will not charge “overload” tuition charges.

Note: the courses listed on this page carry no fee charges ($0.00) and so are not factored into the student bill.  Please be aware that the consequence of this is that the tuition amount listed on your tuition bill does not include the credit hours for this class.  Contact the One Stop Student Service Center for additional information.
