Tuition and Fees

Mandatory fees for online courses differ depending on the class and whether you are an admitted or non-admitted student. In addition to normal tuition and mandatory fees, an online course fee of $25 per credit is added to asynchronous online courses to provide students access to expanded services, including a chat/call center for expedited assistance, extended help desk hours for technical support, and a new campus exam proctoring center. The fee is also used to enrich UO’s online course content by helping faculty create accessible and engaging media.

The best place to find out about specific course fees is the course listing.

For help calculating total costs, visit the Office of the Registrar's Tuition and Fees page.

For questions about the costs and financial aid for online graduate programs please contact the program directly.

Fall 2021

Students can build their fall schedule by selecting courses that are scheduled for the classroom and/or choosing from a menu of courses intentionally designed for online delivery. This past year several of UO’s high-enrollment undergraduate courses underwent a rigorous design process to be offered online. The University of Oregon attaches a $25-per-credit fee to all online courses to pay for instructional design, supporting technology, and system infrastructure.

Financial Aid

In order to receive financial aid, you must be an admitted University of Oregon student enrolled at least part-time. A full list of eligibility and application requirements is available at the UO Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships.
