Undergraduate Costs

2024–2025 tuition for full-time undergraduate students covers a course load of 12–18 hours per semester.

Your total educational expense for the year includes both direct costs (billed to you each semester) and indirect costs (additional expenses during the months you are enrolled).

If taking less than 12 credits, your cost will be $1,510 per credit hour. Only full-time students are eligible for UNE gift aid. The General Service Fee of $780 per semester will apply to enrollment of seven credits or more.

Indirect Costs

Indirect costs for the full academic year — like books, travel, and personal expenses — will vary from student to student depending on personal choices and living situations. For instance, a student who lives off campus may spend far more on travel/transportation because of the inherent costs of daily commuting. A student who takes advantage of the many free campus activities and events may spend less in personal/miscellaneous costs.

We encourage you to estimate for your own purposes these for indirect costs to get the most accurate picture of your total cost of attendance.

Books (estimated)* $1,200
Transportation/Travel Costs (estimated) $1,500
Personal/Miscellaneous Costs (estimated) $1,500
Total Indirect Costs (estimated) $4,200

*Book costs will vary depending on your program of study and course load each semester. We encourage you to visit U-Online under your Student Schedule to help you estimate what you will need to spend. We suggest you take advantage of used and rental books and to shop around for the most economical options.
