Mandatory Fees per Term
Technology Fee $185 per term
Other Related Fees
Orientation Fee $50 per application to the college
Portfolio (Assessment) Fee $315 at initial undergraduate matriculated enrollment (one time)
Individualized Prior Learning Assessment (iPLA) Fee

The Individualized Prior Learning Assessment (IPLA) fee changed to a $700 flat fee effective with the spring 2019 term when registration opened on October 9.

The fee is charged at the time a student’s individualized prior learning assessment request is accepted at the office of academic review and is nonrefundable once the request is accepted. If a student has been charged any amount for individualized prior learning assessments under the previous IPLA fee tiered structure, they will not be charged an additional IPLA fee.  For example, if a student has requested 8 credits of individualized prior learning assessments and paid a $350 IPLA fee in the past, that student will not be charged again for additional prior learning assessments.  Students who were charged the previous Individual Evaluation Fee (IEF) are also exempt from the IPLA fee.

We have discontinued other grandfathering of fees based on first matriculation date.  Only students who have previously paid any IPLA or IEF fees will not be charged for additional assessments.
