A $300 program fee is assessed for enrollment in the Geosciences undergraduate program per academic year. “Program Fees” are additional amounts charged to students in select degree programs within colleges, schools or departments, including honors colleges or programs, that have demonstrably higher costs of delivering instruction overall, or because of the need for or use of special equipment, technology, or key personnel expenses, or market conditions. This fee is applied to your Bursar’s account as a “TUI:UGrad Geosciences Prog Fee” of $150 each fall and spring semester. No program fees are assessed in Winter or Summer sessions.
