Based on the tuition and fees rates effective January 2015, for students who are not transferring credits from other institutions, the estimated total charges for the entire education program are expected to be $61,234 including normal fees such as registration, exams and graduation but excluding variable fees such as add/drop, audit and elective tuition. This estimate is based on program completion in four (4) years and includes a three percent (3%) annual cost increase. This estimate does not take into account an extended timeline for degree completion. The total estimated program costs for transfer students and the total first trimester estimated costs will depend respectively on the number credits approved for transfer and the number of credits of credits taken each trimester.
Tuition and fee charges for first trimester full-time students (17 units) are expected to be approximately $4,707.
In the first, second and third year of the program, tuition and fees approximate $13,341 per year.
In the fourth year of the program, tuition and fees approximate $19,158 per year.
Tuition and fees are subject to annual adjustment.
The price of required and recommended text books can vary greatly, but on average a student can expect to spend approximately $1,000 per year on text books, readers and materials.
Payment can be in the form of cash, check, Financial Aid disbursement and/or Installment Plan payment. Payment is due on the Friday of the first week of the trimester.
YSU offers students short-term loans in the form of an installment payment plan. Under this plan, students pay tuition expenses in three equal monthly installments, with the first payment being made at the time of registration. There is no interest or service charge to participate in the installment payment plan except for a late fee in the event payments are not made on time.
