*Specialized Fees (for Online Courses Only): 

Students are charged a $50  online course testing fee  (per online course they take).  This fee is the same for online courses using ProctorU or Blackboard as their main testing vehicle.  All transferable courses require Proctor U testing for both the Mid-term and Final Exam, except ORI101 (which uses Blackboard).    Late fees apply if using ProctorU.  Students must schedule their Mid-term and Final with ProctorU at least 72 hours prior to testing.  If not, a  LATE fee (paid to ProctorU by the student) between $5.00 and $8.75 will be assessed.  In such cases, the student will have to pay this late fee (out of pocket) at the time of test scheduling.  The $50 online testing fee DOES not include late fees.  Fees are collected at the time of registration.

There is also a $50-$150 pre-paid online e-textbook fees in some select online courses using e-Textbooks.  e-Textbook fees vary per online course.  Students assessed an e-textbook fee will NOT be required to purchase an additional textbook. This fee covers the cost of the core textbook for the class.  Fees are collected at the time of registration.  Fee notifications are posted on student schedules.

*Specialized fees assessed for online courses are subject to change and are non-negotiable and non-refundable if a student remains registered in an online course.
