2012-13 tuition comparison
How do tuition and fees for Oregon State Ecampus classes compare to OSU on-campus tuition and fees?
The per-credit tuition cost of Ecampus courses is identical to the cost of on-campus course tuition. The fees are different. Ecampus courses are not included in the on-campus tuition plateau, and all Ecampus courses are full price regardless of the number of other credits that students take during the term.
(The tuition plateau applies to on-campus courses only and allows students to take anywhere from 12 to 16 credits without accruing additional costs in tuition and fees.)
Ecampus students are never charged at nonresident rates, meaning your tuition is the same if you live in the state of Oregon or anywhere else in the world. And the cost of taking up to 12 credits with Ecampus is comparable to taking the same course load as an on-campus OSU student.
