Per Credit1 - Refers to the assessment calculation for part-time enrollment; less than 9 credits during a semester. Students seeking part-time enrollment must obtain approval from the Office of Graduate and Post-Doctoral Studies. Part-time enrollment tuition is calculated on the per-credit rate and an additional one-time, per-semester, part-time enrollment fee. Students not approved for part-time enrollment will be assessed the full-time enrollment semester tuition charge.

Reduced (Tuition Rate)2 - After 10 semesters of full-time study in one doctoral degree program (excluding the summer semesters), continuing students may be eligible for a reduced tuition rate. A semester of full-time study is defined as a fall or spring semester in which at least 9 hours of credit are earned. Students in the Shepherd School of Music and the School of Architecture are eligible for reduced rate tuition after six semesters of full-time study.
