Tuition and Fees

Mandatory fees for online courses differ depending on the class and whether you are an admitted or non-admitted student. Starting Fall 2019, all online courses have a $25 per credit fee which gives students access to a suite of new services, including a chat/call center for expedited assistance, extended help desk hours (available 20 hours per day, seven days a week) for technical support, and exam proctoring services. The fee will also be 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.

Fall 2020 Changes

As we plan a return to campus for fall 2020, students will have the option to select from online, remote, or in-person formats. Over the summer, several of UO’s high-enrollment undergraduate courses are being redesigned for online delivery. These courses are undergoing a rigorous design process to ensure rich interaction and a robust student learning experience. The University of Oregon attaches a $25-per-credit fee to all online courses to pay for instructional design, supporting technology, and the infrastructure of the system. For the fall 2020 term only, as we purposefully move targeted high-enrollment courses online to comply with guidelines for physical distancing, we will refund the online fee. This will help ease the transition and minimize the impact for students who need to take a high-enrollment course being offered exclusively online without a remote or face-to-face alternative. The fee will appear on your bill as a charge, but it will be automatically credited back to your account so there is no need to pay the online fee.

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.

Most, but not all, financial aid and scholarships will pay for self-support fees. If you are unsure whether your financial aid or scholarship will pay for this course, please contact the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships at 541-346-3221 or
