  • Tuition and Fees for Collaborative Engineering Programs

    Students enrolled in the electrical or mechanical engineering programs offered by FSU in collaboration with University of Maryland, College Park are subject to a different tuition and fee arrangement due to the unique nature of the program. During the freshman and sophomore years, students pay FSU tuition and fees. After completing 45 credits of designated course work, students will apply for formal acceptance into UMCP’s Clark School of Engineering and will be considered UMCP students for the remainder of the program. Students will then pay both UMCP tuition rates and FSU fees to the FSU University and Student Billing Office.

Costs subject to change.
