RULE §13.108Tuition Rate for Students

(a) An institution may charge a higher tuition rate, not to exceed the rate charged to nonresident undergraduate students, to a student whose hours can no longer be submitted for formula funding under §13.103 of this title (relating to Limitation on Formula Funding for Excess Hours), unless those hours are exempted under §13.104 of this title (relating to Exemptions for Excess Hours).

(b) Unless the hours are exempted under §13.106 of this title (relating to Exemptions for Repeated Hours for Attempted Courses), an institution may charge a higher tuition rate, not to exceed the rate charged to nonresident undergraduate students, to a student who enrolls for the second time in a completed course, even though those hours may be submitted for formula funding, or to a student whose hours may no longer be submitted for formula funding under §13.105 of this title (relating to Limitation on Formula Funding for Repeated Hours for Attempted Course).

(c) If an institution charges a higher tuition rate under this section, it shall adopt a policy under which a student is exempted from the payment of that higher tuition rate, if the payment of the higher tuition rate would result in an economic hardship for the student.

(d) A student shall be exempted from payment of higher tuition for any course repeated in the final semester or term before graduation, if the course(s) is taken for the purpose of receiving a grade that will satisfy a degree requirement. This exemption applies for only one semester. The exemption does not affect an institution's ability to charge a higher tuition rate for courses that cannot be reported for funding for other reasons such as the excess credit hour limit, or an institution's ability to waive higher tuition rates for economic hardship.
