Is the tuition listed on the page for the entire Criminal Justice Associate Degree Program?
No, the above tuition is for semester one only. The Criminal Justice Associate Degree consists of four college semesters, each with it's own tuition. The A.S. in Criminal Justice Degree consists of 71 credits (Semester One: 17 credits, Semester Two: 18 credits, Semester Three: 18 credits, Semester Four: 18 credits). Penn Foster College reserves the right to adjust the tuition and fees in subsequent semesters. In addition, a non-refundable shipping and handling fee of $65 for each semester will be charged.
Do I have to pay off my full semester one tuition before moving on to my next semester?
No! If you've chosen a monthly payment plan for your online health care management classes and are still making payments when you complete semester 1, your tuition balance will be rolled into the tuition total for your next semester. This can increase the cost of your monthly payments.
