Differential Tuition: Effective Fall 2016, this required fee applies to any full-time student who registers for 7 units/hours, or more, outside of their primary campus, academic program level and/or career.

The same applies to the non-resident surcharge (in some cases the non-resident surcharge is less so student will receive a waiver for the difference).
Differential Tuition Examples >
- A Branch Campus student taking 7 undergraduate units/credit hours, or more, offered by a Main Campus (Clifton/Uptown) college will be charged a differential fee regardless of class location
- A Main Campus undergraduate student taking 7 graduate or Law units/hours, or more, will be charged a differential fee equal to the difference between the undergraduate and graduate or Law full-time instructional fee.
