Tuition FAQ

Is the price listed for the full degree program?

The above tuition is the cost for semester one only. Subsequent semesters each have their own tuition cost. 

Do I have to pay off my semester balance before moving on to the next semester?

If you're on a monthly payment plan, you do not have to finish paying your current semester in full before enrolling in the next. Your balance will be added to the total tuition for the new semester, which can increase your monthly payments.
