*Specialized Fees (for Online Courses Only): 

$50  online course testing fee  (per online course).  This fee is the same for online courses using Blackboard as the main testing vehicle, ProctorU or for online courses using Lawson's testing center.   Late fees apply if using ProctorU.  Students must schedule their test with ProctorU at least 72 hours prior to testing.  If not, a  LATE fee (paid to ProctorU by the student) between $5.00 and $8.75 will be assessed.  In such cases, the student will have to pay this late fee (out of pocket) at the time of test scheduling.  The $50 online testing fee DOES not include late fees.

$50-$150 pre-paid online e-textbook fees in some select online courses.  e-Textbook fees vary per online course.  Students assessed an e-textbook fee will NOT be required to purchase an additional textbook. This fee covers the cost of the core textbook for the class.
