Courses

Individual online or hybrid courses are a convenient way to complete prerequisites, fulfill requirements, enhance career skills, or pursue a personal interest. Online courses require the same amount of work and dedication as classroom-based courses, but are often more self-paced. Generally, one credit is equal to one hour of “class” time and one hour of homework a week. This varies by individual and does not include study time.

How much will it cost?

Your course tuition and fees will vary depending on several factors, inclduing your student status, residency, and campus. Visit your campus website to help you determine your costs: CrookstonDuluthMorrisRochesterTwin Cities.
