Program costs include the total amount of tuition and fees for completing the program within normal time and the typical costs for books and supplies. An explanation of normal time is provided in the on-time completion rate definition below. Program costs are based on current rates and are subject to change. Program costs are denoted separately for the Colorado Springs campus, Denver Instructional Site, and online programs due to the difference in tuition costs between the modalities. A complete break-down of program cost information, including indirect costs which are not billed directly by the University, may be found at http://www.rockies.edu/admissions/online_cost.htm.
On-Time Completion Rate:
The on-time program completion rate represents the percentage of students who completed their program in the most recently completed award year (July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012) within the normal timeframe for that program out of the total students who completed the program in that year. For example, if 100 students completed a program between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012 and 60 of those students finished the program within the normal time for completion, the on-time completion rate would be 60%. If there were no completers in the timeframe referenced, or if fewer than 10 students completed in the timeframe, then "N/A" will appear. The on-time completion rate is not to be confused with a graduation rate; rather, it is the percentage of graduates who complete their program within the normal timeframe, per federal regulation.
The academic calendar for programs offered in the online modality is continuous, rather than defined by semester dates. Normally, students take one course at a time and move to the next course in the program sequence without a break. All courses begin on a Tuesday and end on a Monday six or nine weeks later. There is generally one annual two-week Winter Break when courses are not scheduled.
Thus, the normal time for a full-time master's student to complete this program may be calculated by multiplying the total number of courses in the program by six (6) weeks, adding 4 weeks for the Comprehensive Exam, and adding two (2) weeks break for each fifty (50) week period. The normal time for completion of this program is 86 weeks.Online and Denver Instructional Site
