Delivery Fees

Delivery fees are assessed to all students taking Engineering-LAS Online Learning online courses. Delivery fees are in addition to tuition. This fee helps to cover not only the delivery of the courses to off-campus students, but also to maintain our two high tech classrooms, to purchase the equipment needed to keep us on the cutting edge of technology, to employ technicians and operators to run the equipment for the production of each course, to provide the administration of the programs, and to provide prompt and personal support to our off-campus students.
