Nurse Anesthesia: Tuition and Fees

Based on nine credit hours in graduate programs, 2019-20 tuition and fees at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (including $100/hour nursing fee) are approximately $6,035 per semester for in-state and $10,067 per semester for out-of-state students.  Costs may increase modestly each academic year.  Detailed information regarding current tuition and fees can be found on the Fee Schedule website. Plan for a modest increase each academic year.

Academic Common Market (ACM)

The ACM is a consortium of 16 Southern states that belong to the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB). Through this program, students wishing to pursue study in graduate programs not available within their home states may be able to attend out-of-state programs at in-state tuition rates. Students must initiate the ACM application process. See www.sreb.org/node/1647 for additional information.
