Is the tuition listed on the page for the entire Criminal Justice Bachelor's Degree?
No, the above tuition is for semester one only. The Criminal Justice B.S. Degree is an eight semester program with each semester having its own pricing. The B.S. in Criminal Justice consists of 121 credits (Semester One: 14 credits; Semester Two: 15 credits; Semester Three: 16 credits; Semester Four: 15 credits; Semester Five: 15 credits; Semester Six: 15 credits; Semester Seven: 15 credits; Semester Eight: 16 credits). Penn Foster College reserves the right to adjust 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 one, your tuition balance will be rolled into the tuition total for your next semester. This can increase the cost of your monthly payments.
