Summer Traditional Tuition Rate Per Credit Hour: $657.00

Rochester Christian University’s tuition, fees, room and board rates are set annually and are subject to change. All students pay the same tuition rate regardless of their residency. Traditional undergraduate students who are enrolled in 12-18 credit hours pay a block rate. Block tuition enables traditional full-time students to pay a single price for between 12-18 credit hours per term (Fall and Spring semesters).

The block tuition rate does not include food and housing or course-specific and individual fees. Students are encouraged to take the maximum hours each semester to complete their degree on time. Students who are enrolled in less than 12 undergraduate credit hours are charged a per credit hour cost and those who are enrolled in more than 18 hours are charged a rate of the additional credit hour in addition to the established block rate.

Students may incur additional fees, such as the New Student Orientation fee and possible course fees, depending on individual course schedule and status.
