You are charged the usual full-time undergraduate tuition rate and mandatory fees as listed in the University catalog. If you are a part-time student (11 hours and below) taking one of these online courses, you will be charged a tuition rate of $775.00 per semester credit hour for the course, plus mandatory fees as listed in the University catalog.

FINANCIAL AID Grants and Loans - Federal Grants and Loans may be available through th Office of Financial Aid to be used toward SBU Online. You must meet certain eligibility criteria to qualify, just as with all Federal aid. Since the Department of Extended Learning offers only a limited number of online courses and does not offer a degree program through online study, the expectation is that only those students taking regular classroom course along with some online study would fit the criteria of degree seeking students through SBU.
