Even before COVID-19 affected campus, the university had decided to make all resident, undergraduate tuition rates the same per credit hour to help reduce confusion among students and their families. The current rate for resident undergraduate tuition is $184 per credit for both in-person and online courses.
There will be a $53 per credit online fee assessed to all online courses taken by undergraduate students winter and spring terms 2021. The online fee will be assessed through 12 credits. Credits above 12 will be assessed the online fee for 12 credits. This fee pays for the technology and infrastructure required to deliver online classes, as well as some student services.
If students were attending classes in person instead, they would be paying mandatory fees instead such as building fees, incidental fees, the health service fee and others. Students taking a mix of in-person and online courses pay the corresponding portion of different fees based on the number of credits of each delivery type. See the chart below to compare in-person fee totals to online fees.
Many other universities continue to charge students in-person fees even though most classes are online PLUS online fees. WOU chose not to go that route in order to save students and their families money in this unprecedented time.
