Students who take fewer than 12 semester hours in a semester are billed $1,545 per semester hour instead of the full tuition.

The financial aid application process (filing a FAFSA) requires an investment of your time, but we are here to help. Please contact the Student Financial Services staff at or call 800-326-9672 or 570-372-4450 with your questions or concerns.
