Lower tuition rates this summer to help students during COVID-19

Visiting students often turn to TESU for courses during the summer or when filling a gap in a degree program at their home institution.* Because we recognize that the COVID-19 crisis has disrupted many educational programs, we are temporarily lowering our visiting student undergraduate rates to match our degree-seeking rates for terms starting in May, June or July.
