RN-BSN Gateway Logo Student Expenses

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 2018-19 tuition for six hours was $2,155 for Tennessee residents and $2,311 for out-of-state.  In addition, there is a $57/credit hour (or a total of $342 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.
