Limitation on Eligibility for In-State Tuition: 125% Progress toward Degree

Beginning in 2006, the Commonwealth of Virginia enacted legislation to place a limitation on students’ eligibility for in-state tuition. Upon completion of 125% of the credit hours required to obtain a degree in the student’s program, the student may be assessed a surcharge which is equivalent to the cost of tuition at the out-of-state rate. Please note that certain courses and credit hours maybe excluded from the 125% calculation. Students who have or will have earned 145 or more credit hours should contact the Office of the Registrar for more information. Impacted students may appeal to the Office of the Registrar for a waiver as provided by the Code of Virginia, Section 16.

For questions or concerns about the release of academic information to a third party, please contact the Office of the Registrar at (757) 594-7155 or register@cnu.edu.
