Tuition & Fees

During the 2017-18 academic year (Fall 2017, Spring 2018 and Summer 2018), visiting students will be charged part-time tuition rates of $379 per credit-hour for District of Columbia residents or $757 per credit-hour for non-District residents. All enrollees must pay student fees each semester or term. Total fees charged will depend on the first semester in which a student enrolls and the number of credits taken, but a student can expect to pay approximately $500 in fees each semester or term.

All UDC students must have health insurance coverage. You will be automatically enrolled in, and billed for, the university-sponsored health insurance plan unless you submit adequate proof of existing, comparable coverage by each semester’s deadline. See UDC's Student Health Insurance page for costs and deadlines.

Visiting students are not eligible for financial assistance from UDC-DCSL, but may apply for the D.C. resident tuition rate if not currently under an F-1 student visa.

All tuition and fees are due at registration. Registration is not complete without Finance/ Billing approval.

Deposits will be returned for courses not available due to over-subscription, cancellation, or inadequate enrollment.

Registering for Courses

In order to complete registration, each admitted visiting student must bring his or her acceptance letter from the Office of Admission to On-Site Registration. On-Site Registration takes place in the School of Law Registrar’s Office, 4340 Connecticut Ave NW, Room 212, on the first day of classes each semester. Students should consult the Academic Calendar for the exact date and times.
