Beginning Spring 2016 for all students in the Forensic Sciences, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, and Clinical Toxicology programs, tuition will increase from $525/credit hour to $575.00 per credit hour plus fees. The fees have not changed: non-degree and graduate certificate students will pay capital improvement/technology fees. M.S. students will pay capital improvement/technology/financial aid fees.
