Tuition & Payments
The cost per credit hour of taking a Syracuse University course through Project Advance is $110.
Tuition is based on the number of credits designated for your courses. Your high school officials are notified of tuition charges well in advance of each academic year. If you are registering for a full-year, two-semester course—American history (6 credits), biology (8 credits), chemistry (8 credits), statistics (6 credits), or writing/English (6 credits)—tuition must be paid in full by the fall semester payment due date.
The same is true for accounting, cybersecurity, forensics, French, Italian, Spanish, and calculus (MAT 295 and MAT 296), all of which are four-credit, yearlong courses.
College learning strategies, computer engineering, economics, information technology, object-oriented design, personal finance, presentational speaking, psychology, public affairs, sociology, and sport management are all three-credit, one-semester courses that may be offered during the fall or spring semesters, depending on your high school’s schedule.
Forensic science is a four-credit course that may be offered as a one-semester or yearlong course, depending on your high school’s schedule. Syracuse University requires payment for these courses at the beginning of the semester in which they are taken.
Once registrations have been received and processed, parents/guardians will be billed for their student’s tuition at the address provided on the registration form. Project Advance must receive the tuition payment by the due date printed on the invoice. The first payment due date for the fall semester is Oct. 15 or Nov. 15; for the spring semester it is March 15 or April 15.
Upon receipt of the bill, parents/guardians will have the option of paying the balance in full or on the three-month payment plan. The payment plan includes an additional $15 service charge so that monthly billing notices can be mailed to you.
Registering for a Syracuse University course incurs a financial obligation to Syracuse University. Failure to pay tuition will result in the student being placed on financial hold; students on financial hold will not be issued SU transcripts.
If you receive an invoice and decide that your student does not want the Syracuse University credit, verify on the registrar’s calendar if your student still has time to drop the class without any financial liability. If so, you will need to notify the instructor immediately so that a drop form can be processed. Syracuse University reserves the right to take appropriate actions to collect unpaid tuition, including the use of outside agencies.
NOTE: Global students must pay in full to register. Read the Global Student Guide for details.
