Please note that the fees for the nurse practitioner programs vary based on the delivery method and specific labs. All courses which require a campus residency will include university per credit hour fees, all others will have only a university technology fee.  However, some courses which include lab costs, such as simulation, may have an associated course fee. Summer courses will not have per credit hour fees but will have technology and summer fees. 

The University reserves the right to provide some or all instruction and related academic activities through alternative methods of delivery, including remote delivery. It also reserves the right to change the method of delivery before or during an academic term in the event of a health or safety emergency or other circumstance when it determines that such change is necessary or in the best interests of the campus community. Tuition and mandatory fees will not be reduced or refunded if the University changes the delivery method for any or all of an academic session.
