Tuition for the online Bachelor of Science in Health Information Management and Technology program is a flat fee of $390 per credit (61 credits total) whether you live in Wisconsin or out of state. All courses are three credits, except for HIMT 489 which is a one-credit pre-capstone course. There are no additional course or program fees. As this is an online program, students do not pay segregated fees–fees in addition to tuition that cover the costs of student-organized activities, facility maintenance, and operations such as student health centers. However, textbooks and software (if needed) are purchased separately and not included in the credit tuition cost.
Financial aid is awarded through your home campus. Contact your home campus financial aid office for details.

Completing this form is always the first step when applying for federal or state financial aid.
