Nonresidents of Tennessee and those outside the ACM taking online classes pay only $75 more per credit hour for maintenance and out-of-state tuition. An agreement among states and participating colleges and universities allows students to pursue degrees at UT on an in-state tuition basis.

  • If an online course has two sections, campus students must register for the section designated for campus and distance education students must register for the section designated for DE.
  • Campus students enrolled part-time in a given semester may be charged additional fees based on the number of hours in which they are enrolled.
  • Fees for part-time students are pro-rated and calculated based on the number of credit hours enrolled.
