Aviation Flight Fees
Flight Majors: Flight-training fees are above-and-beyond tuition costs and are to be paid at the beginning of each semester. This is to insure that flight training progresses without interruption due to financial limitations. Required course fees for graduation are calculated to include FAA ground and flight testing, simulator rental, and 260 hours of airplane rental incorporating 50 hours of multi-engine flight instruction. The fees are only cost estimates and may be adjusted for students with prior flight experience or the ability of the student. Instructor fees are paid out of course tuition. Any additional flight or ground instruction, beyond each 65-hour flight training module and course fee, will incur additional training fees. Additionally, these fees will cover the cost of a student's flight medical, and in the case of international students, the TSA fee. Uniforms, FAA written tests, charts and other materials are additional and cannot be charged against the flight training fees.
Please note: Flight training fees are non-refundable. Students should plan to complete their training within the semester they have enrolled for the course. If, due to special circumstances, they are unable to complete the training, they may be given a second semester to finish using their flight balance. At the end of the second semester, any remaining balance is forfeited and will be unusable.
Community (Non-Flight Majors) Taking Flight Training: Flight-training fees will be on a pay-as-you-go basis. Ground School classes are available with no university credit for $350 per course. Credit for such courses may be obtained by registering through the registrar's office and paying regular tuition. For flight certificates without credit call the Department of Aeronautics for a cost estimate.
Flight Training Fees and Rates: Rates and fees are subject to change without notice due to changes in operating costs (insurance, fuel, etc.). Every attempt will be made to maintain published rates.
