Gateway Classes (100% online)
The normal Gateway course load is six hours per semester (except during the one summer session which is 9 hours). Please see the UTC Learn and Distance fee schedules distributed by the Bursars Office for current rates. For 2015-16 tuition for six hours was $2,089 for Tennessee residents and $2,245 for out-of-state. In addition, there is a $55/credit hour (or a total of $330 for six hours) Nursing fee. Tuition is set by the Board of Trustees annually.
Other UTC Classes (on-campus)
If you take additional on-campus general education classes at UTC, those will be billed at the regular fee schedule. Your advisor can tell you how many general education classes you will need to earn a BSN.
Many of the Gateway classes require a textbook, so budget around $250/semester for this expense. Used books, rental textbooks, or e-Book versions can lower your cost.
