Fees, conditions of assessment, and refund policies are subject to change without prior notice by action of the Tennessee Board of Regents. All registration fees, dormitory rent and meal plan charges are payable in advance unless a deferred payment plan is approved (available for fall and spring semesters only). For more information about the deferred plan, including service charges, late fees, minimum deferrable amounts, etc., www.tntech.edu/bursar/deferred contact the Business Office Accounts Receivable section.
Maintenance fees (in-state tuition) and out-of-state tuition are calculated based upon the number of Student Credit Hours (SCH’s) for which a student is enrolled including any courses taken on an audit basis. Fee rates are based upon student level (graduate or undergraduate) rather than on the course level. For example, a graduate student choosing to enroll in an undergraduate course will be assessed graduate level rates. The full hourly rate will apply to the first 12 hours taken by an undergraduate and to the first 10 hours taken by a graduate student. A discounted hourly rate will apply to enrollment beyond these base hours.
Developmental courses are charged at the two-year institution hourly rates. If a student enrolls in both regular and developmental courses, rates shall be assessed at the hourly rate for each up to the current amount of 12 undergraduate hours. The discounted tuition rate will then apply to any additional courses.
RODP and DMBA fees are calculated separately and payable in addition to the main campus fees. Fees for RODP and DMBA hours are not subject to a discount for enrollment beyond 12 undergraduate or 10 graduate hours. Full hourly rates are assessed for all RODP and DMBA enrollments.
The summer semester is divided into two sessions. Students may register and pay fees for the full summer or for each session separately. For summer semester, fees are assessed at the full hourly rate and are not subject to discount for enrollment beyond the base hours. Also note the deferred payment plan is not available for summer semester.
In addition to in-state and out-of-state tuition, other fees are applicable. See the Bursar Office website at www.tntech.edu/bursar for a comprehensive listing of current fees and the corresponding refund policies.
No student may enroll or receive a diploma, transcript of records, or grade report until all matured debts or obligations to the University, or any phase of its program, have been cleared.
