(taking less than 180 hours per semester) enrolled in a program leading to a D.E.C. (Diploma) or an A.E.C. (Attestation), or as Independent Studies pay tuition fees.

Full-time students (taking 180 hours or four courses per semester) enrolled in a D.E.C. or an A.E.C. program do not pay tuition fees. They do, however, pay all other associated costs: Application (if applicable), Registration, Educational Support, Student Services Fees.
