A Special Welcome to Alabama Students

Alabama students will be extended In-State Tuition + a fixed dollar amount per credit hour which represents a significant discount from out-of-State tuition and is actually lower than in-state tuition charged by some states.

Sample Pricing for Online Courses and Certificate Programs

For online courses, please see the UWF Tuition and Fees page.
