Payment

Upon registration, all students are required to pay half of the upcoming term tuition after financial aid awards are considered. Students are required to pay all of the balance from terms prior at the time registration for the upcoming term.

Outstanding balance from a previous semester

Until the balance is paid, the student will not be allowed to:

  • Register for any subsequent semester.
  • Obtain a transcript of academic work.

Fees are reviewed on an annual basis and are subject to change without notice. A student's past balance must be paid at the time of registration along with at least half of the subsequent session tuition. Tuition is due at the time of registration, unless the student has enrolled in a payment plan or is pre-approved for and fully funded by financial aid.

Half the Cost Details

Tuition for Columbia College online undergraduate courses is $290 per credit hour for the 2016-2017 academic year. Based on a completion of 30 credit hours in an academic year, the annual cost would be $8,700. This is about half the cost or less than the national average private nonprofit and for-profit tuition and fees rate. National average tuition and fees for public, private nonprofit and for-profit colleges and universities is published in the CollegeBoard Trends in College Pricing 2015 report.
