For more information, visit our Health Insurance Waiver/Enrollment webpage.
  • Independent study courses.
  • Field trips required for certain courses.

Meal plans are optional for students who live off-campus. All meal plan requests, changes, and cancelations must be requested through the housing portal by the end of the add/drop period each term.  No meal plan additions, cancelations or changes will be permitted after the deadline.

******Students registering for less than 12 credits are considered to be part-time students and are charged $1,018 per credit, plus additional per course fees as applicable. Registration for less than 12 credits may affect the amount of scholarships and other financial aid.
