Aviation Flight Fees
Flight Majors: Flight-training fees 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 flight module fees for the degree include a minimum of 260 hours; consisting of flight experience in airplances, and 50 hours in flight simulators. The fees are only cost estimates and may be adjusted for students with prior flight experience or the ability of the student. Flight instructor fees generally are covered by course tuition. Any additional flight or ground instruction, beyond each 65-hour flight training module and/or course lab fee, will incur additional hourly training fees. Students should plan to cover their own costs of the 1st class FAA medical, and in the case of international students, the TSA application 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, approved by the departments; students unable to complete the training may be given a specified extension to finish their flight. Beyond that exception, unused hours after the semester enrolled are forefeited and will be unusable.
Aviation Professional Fee
International Flight Students: TSA Application Fee for Permission to Commence Flight Training $130
The fee is required for all non-U.S. students training as Private, Instrument and Multi-engine pilots. An approved application allots one year of training for each of the above flight ratings. If a student does not complete the rating in that time frame, they will be required to repay the TSA fee and reapply to continue training.
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 Aviation for a cost estimate.
