Policy regarding full-time traditional students and their taking online coursework

Online course offerings are not considered as part of the full-time, undergraduate face to face student’s in-load assignment for billing purposes.  The full-time, face to face student participating in athletics, and residential students may take online courses, but only as an overload, billed at the full, undiscounted tuition rate with associated fees set annually by the institution. 

Further, those who achieve full-time status through a combination of face to face and online courses will be billed the individual credit hour rate, but will be ineligible for institutionally funded and/or controlled financial assistance programs.

Deviations or exceptions to this policy can be made at the discretion of the provost.
