Virtual Finances

Financial Information

Note: This financial information is for virtual students not affiliated with a Bridge to Campus learning center. Bridge students should consult their learning center’s page for current financial information.

Tuition and Fees

Tution and fee costs for undergraduate students vary based on student status (ex. high school dual enrollment). Pricing for virtual classes is, however, the same as for online classes. Please visit the HERE and select your student type from the options at the front to see your pricing information.

Students are responsible for ordering and paying for their own textbooks/materials; however, the cost varies based on vendor, new/old, whether you keep them or re-sell them, etc.
