Fall 20 Tuition and Fees:

The University of Louisville is permanently changing its tuition structure for individual online courses. For the Fall 2020 semester and beyond, tuition rates for online courses will be the same as rates for in-person courses. There will no longer be a different rate or surcharge for individual online classes.

This means students can take any mix of online, in-person and hybrid classes for the same base credit hour rate. The new structure is in place for both undergraduate and graduate courses.

Please note that students who are enrolled in a 100% online degree program through our Online Learning office will continue to pay online program rates.

  • Fall 2020 charges will begin to be available on student accounts beginning July 6th
  • Fall 2020 Payment plans will open on July 13th.  Please visit Payment Options for information.
