Tuition and Fees and Charges
Fees are approved by the Tennessee Board of Regents once a year (usually in June) and are updated on this website each July. You may ESTIMATE fees for subsequent years by adding 5-10% each year.
Tennessee State University reserves the right to increase the charges listed here-in or to add new fees whenever such increases or additions become necessary. The listing of any fee or incidental charge in no way constitutes a contract between the University and the student. As a condition of registration, each student must pay the appropriate fee(s) in effect at the time of registration. Fees assessed at the time of registration are subject to audit and correction at a later date. The Admissions Office determines a student's residency classification for fee-paying purposes. If a student is incorrectly classified he/she will be charged for additional fees owed or refunded fees overpaid. Bills Will Not Be Mailed. Access myTSU@ myTSU.tnstate.edu to view account balances.
