Tuition and Fees


Tuition, Fees, and Discount Programs 2022-2023

The University's tuition and fee schedules are determined by the Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) and the University's Governing Board.  The publication of each year's fee structure occurs at the start of the State's fiscal year (the July preceding the Fall Term).  Prior to publication, you may estimate an additional 2-5% for the upcoming Fall/Spring Terms.

Students are permitted to register for subsequent terms, obtain grades/transcripts, and receive the hard-copy degree when all accounts balances are paid. A student is officially enrolled when the Term's tuition and fees are paid in full or covered by approved third party funding.
