Student Costs

Common Price

The "Common Price" per credit hour for each academic program is established and reviewed annually by the Great Plains IDEA Financial Officers Functional Team. The recommended Common Price is forwarded to the Great Plains IDEA Cabinet for approval. The Common Price includes all fees and distance delivery costs. Students pay the Common Price for all courses completed through Great Plains IDEA. If a student enrolls in a course at their home institution, but outside of Great Plains IDEA, regular university tuition and fees may apply. You can read more about the "Common Price" on page 12 of the Policy and Procedure Manual.

The Common Price for the 2016-2017 academic year is $545 per graduate credit hour and $390 per undergraduate credit hour.
The Common Price for the 2017-2018 academic year is $565 per graduate credit hour and $405 per undergraduate credit hour.
