Even more savings on tuition by going to Oxford!
You can save over $2000 on future tuition dollars by going to Oxford and taking 6-7 credit hours this summer!
When you take 6-7 hours in the summer it means you can reduce your final semester by 6-7 hours...this can save you over $2,000
Here's how it works- Flat rate tuition is for 12-19 credit hours. For engineering/science students flat rate for a semester is
$16,580 (through Spring 2012). One credit hour is currently $995.
Let's say you would have needed 16 hours in spring of your senior year ($16,580), but you took 6 hours in Oxford ($4,478). Now,
in spring of your senior year you only need to take 10 hours and pay $9950 ($995x 10 hours). This $9950 combined with the
$4,478 for Oxford is $14,428. So you save $2,152 off of tuition is spring of your senior year by taking 6 hours in Oxford.
A wise choice!
