Differential Tuition in the College of Geosciences
The College of Geosciences is proposing to increase the differential tuition to $244.39 per semester to ensure that all geoscience undergraduate majors have an opportunity to participate in a field experience in addition to continuing support for classroom and laboratory enhancements, and additional instructors for undergraduate courses. Even with the proposed increase the tuition and fees paid by students in the College of Geosciences will be less than is paid by students in comparable geoscience programs across the country.
Differential tuition is an additional charge that is currently used to pay for:
- Enhancements and upgrades to undergraduate teaching laboratories and classes with a focus on updating technology
- Additional instructors to support course offerings and undergraduate participation in high impact learning experiences
- Support for field experiences such as Field Camp for Geology and Geophysics
