Guaranteed Tuition Plan


Undergraduate resident students default into the Guaranteed Tuition and Fee Plan (aka Guaranteed Plan) at the point of admission acceptance.*  Guaranteed Plans eliminate uncertainty about future tuition increases, allowing students and parents to accurately prepare their education budget while encouraging on-time graduation. 

Students who initially enrolled with University prior to fall 2016 were placed in a mandatory Guaranteed Plan for up to three years (nine consecutive terms).  Effective fall 2016, students who enroll with the University will default into a Guaranteed Plan that is in effect for up to four years (12 consecutive terms) based on classification at the point of admission acceptance.  Freshmen will have 4 years, sophomores will have 3 years, and juniors will have 2 years.  Undergraduate resident students who continue enrollment after the expiration of their Guaranteed Plan will be assessed tuition and fees based on the One Year Option Tuition and Fee rates in effect at that time.  

*Transfer students classified as a Senior at the point of admission acceptance will not default into the Guaranteed Plan. They will be assessed based on the One Year Option Tuition and Fee Plan.  Tuition and fee tables for both plans may be found at Tuition and Fee Tables.

The Guaranteed Plan covers:  Statutory Tuition, Designated Tuition, and All Mandatory Fees (International Education Fee, Rec Sports Fee, University Services Fee).  It does not cover Ebook course fees, lab fees, or optional fees such as field trip fees, parking permits, etc.

IMPORTANT: Students who opt out of the Guaranteed Plan will be assessed tuition and fees based on the One Year Option Tuition and Fee Plan.  The One Year Option Tuition and Fee Plan is locked in for the current academic year, and may increase each year thereafter.  After opting out of the Guaranteed Plan the student is not eligible to opt in to the Guaranteed Plan at a later point in time.

First time students may opt out of the Guaranteed Plan on or before the census date for their initial term.  To complete the process of opting out of the Guaranteed Plan, students must log into their account via JagWire, click on Classes and Registration and follow the steps to opt-out.
