Tuition & Fees

Evaluate Overall Cost Closely

When comparing schools and the cost of attendance, always consider the total cost of the education, which includes tuition and fees.  A tuition rate may look attractive, but the various fees a school charges can add up quickly.  Some of these extra fees at other schools may include student activity fees, registration fees, parking fees, mailing costs, and others. Luther Rice charges only one course related fee, a $170 technology fee per course.

 

Also, be sure to confirm part-time vs. full-time tuition rates at other schools.  Often, part-time rates are higher. Many Luther Rice students fall into a part-time status given their other life responsibilities.  Luther Rice does not charge a higher tuition rate for part-time students. 

* For many schools, including Luther Rice, Full-time status is 4 or more classes a semester (undergraduate) and 3 or more classes a semester (graduate).
