Tuition and Fees

How much does Distance Education cost?

Tuition and other mandatory fees for online courses differ depending on the class and whether you are an admitted or non-admitted student.

The best place to find out about specific course fees is the course listing.

For help calculating total costs, visit the Office of the Registrar's Tuition and Fees page.

What is a self-support fee?

Some online classes have what are called self-support fees. A self-support fee is a flat fee that replaces tuition, and is the same for all students. It is not affected by student status, residency, or overall credit load. Self-support fee courses are flagged on the UO class schedule with the course note 'T' and the fee listed.

Billing for self-support fee courses is the same as with regular tuition courses; the cost will be billed via UO Bill and is payable through DuckWeb/QuikPay.

Is Financial Aid available?

In order to receive financial aid, you must be an admitted University of Oregon student enrolled at least part-time. A full list of eligibility and application requirements is available at the UO Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships.

Most, but not all, financial aid and scholarships will pay for self-support fees. If you are unsure whether your financial aid or scholarship will pay for this course, please contact the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships at 541-346-3221 or

Community Education Program (CEP) students are not eligible for financial aid.
