Tuition & Fees

To assist with your financial planning, we have prepared estimates of the costs for three-year and four-year Maritime programs. The Maritime Officer Programs each have a curriculum "guides" that include both Maritime and general education courses which are set at different rates. The guides are located under the "Academics" tab and the courses are color coded to identify the general education and maritime courses.

  • Maritime courses for 2022 are $481.00 per credit hour for all students regardless of residence.
  • General Education courses are less, priced per contact hour and based on residence. Transfer and Advanced Placement credit may decrease the general education tuition and fees required.

The NMC Board of Trustees approved the 2022–2023 budget on June 27, 2022. Additional charges for tuition and fees may be assessed to your account.
