Guaranteed Tuition Plan
Effective Fall 2018, undergraduate resident students default into the One Year Option Tuition and Fee Plan at the point of admission acceptance. The One Year Option Tuition and Fee Plan is locked in for the current academic year, and may increase each year thereafter.
First time students may opt into the Guaranteed Plan on or before the census date for their initial term. Guaranteed Plans eliminate uncertainty about future tuition increases, allowing students and parents to accurately prepare their education budget while encouraging on-time graduation. To complete the process of opting into the Guaranteed Plan, students must log into their account via JagWire, click on Classes and Registration and follow the steps to opt-in.
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.
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 through summer 2018, new undergraduate resident students who enrolled with the University defaulted 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 have 4 years, sophomores have 3 years, and juniors 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. Tuition and fee tables for both plans may be found at Tuition and Fee Tables.
IMPORTANT: Students who opt in to the Guaranteed Plan will be locked in to the Guaranteed Tuition and Fee Plan for up to four years (12 consecutive terms) based on classification at the point of opting-in. After opting in to the Guaranteed Plan the student is not eligible to opt out of the Guaranteed Plan at a later point in time. Students transferring in with classification of senior are not eligible to opt in to the Guaranteed Plan.
