The eRate is available to students who enroll at TBR institutions, who are classified as nonresidents of Tennessee, and who are enrolled exclusively in online courses. The eRate is a significant reduction in the out of state tuition cost.
The eRate out-of-state tuition rate is $80.00 per credit hour.
To qualify for an eRate, students must (a) meet all institution admission requirements and must (b) be verified as an online out-of-state student enrolled exclusively in courses delivered online by a procedure documented by the institution. Students enrolled in any type courses other than online (on-ground, distance education, etc.) will not be eligible for the eRate specified in this guideline and will instead incur traditional non-resident fees and charges. Students who enroll in both online courses and other type courses and subsequently drop the other type courses will not then become eligible for the eRate.
