Undergraduate Tuition Rates
Tuition payment or satisfactory arrangement to pay tuition is due generally one week prior to the beginning of the semester. Tuition is charged at the per semester hour rate shown below.
Full-time tuition charges are for 12 to 17 semester hours. A student who registers for more than 17 semester hours is subject to additional tuition costs at the per-semester hour rate (for example, tuition charged for 18 semester hours will be $11,950 + $1,000 or $12,950). A student who registers for 11 semester hours or fewer is charged the per semester hour rate multiplied by the number of registered semester hours.

Make a Tuition Payment
Payments may be made in the Business Office by cash, check, or money order. Electronic payment options including credit card, debit card, and electronic check/ACH are available online via the Finance page of MyHU. A preregistered student can view account information online.
A convenience fee of 2.75% will be added for any credit/debit card transactions involving student tuition payments or other services. Online ACH/electronic check payments will not incur a convenience fee.
Tuition Refund Policy
Tuition for the semester is considered fully-earned at the end of the third week of classes. For refund purposes, the semester begins on the first day of class for that semester, regardless of the student’s first class day of attendance during week one. The period of time used to calculate the tuition refund is the first day of class of the semester to the University’s determination date of official or unofficial withdrawal.
There will be no refund or additional charges for a student who adds and drops an equal number of semester hours within the same semester prior to the end of the Add/Drop Period.
If a student reduces the number of courses and/or semester hours during the published Add/Drop Period, a tuition adjustment for that course or semester hour reduction will be made, except when the student maintains full-time enrollment status with 12 semester hours or more.
There is no tuition refund when a student withdraws from one or more courses after the Add/Drop Period but remains enrolled in one or more other scheduled courses.
A scholarship payment received from a company or organization is applied to the student’s tuition balance. The refund policy does not apply separately to the various types of payments credited to the student’s account.
