230.060 eLearning and Special Program Tuition and Fees

Bd. Min. 2-3-12; Amended 4-10-14; Amended 12-9-16.

  1. Courses delivered primarily using eLearning technologies will use the following fee structure:
    1. For undergraduate courses and programs the standard undergraduate tuition for resident and non-resident students as appropriate will apply for students who attend classes on a UM campus. In some cases the courses or programs may require additional expenses and a supplemental fee may be charged with Board approval using the procedures outlined in Collected Rules and Regulations Section 230.010, Tuition and Supplemental Course Fees. Exceptions in the form of a special tuition rate may be proposed to the Board for approval.
    2. For non-resident distance students, the undergraduate eLearning tuition may fluctuate within the range of the current resident and non-resident rates based on market demand.
    3. For graduate and professional programs the tuition structure will be limited to a range approved by the Board of Curators.  Each campus will submit a separate range for its tuition.  The Chancellor is delegated the authority to determine the applicability of such tuition and to approve individual tuition rates consistent with the approved range for such tuition.
  2. When a complete self-contained graduate or professional degree program is designed as one curriculum entity and the complete program involves charges for such items as course materials, travel, lodging, meal expenses, technology equipment and/or charges for other components of the program in addition to the standard tuition and fees, a comprehensive program fee may be utilized that is market-driven, provided that such comprehensive program fee is greater than the standard tuition and fees. All comprehensive program fees must be approved by the chancellor and reported to the President annually.
  3. Special fees related to a particular course or program that are designed to recover the actual additional cost of participating in the program must be approved by the Chancellor or their delegate. One example is a study abroad fee that covers student travel and lodging.
  4. High school dual credit courses taught off campus utilizing non-university faculty may be assessed a tuition lower than the resident undergraduate rate provided that the dual credit rate is approved by the Chancellor and reported to the President annually.
