Students pay per credit hour. Take your time based on what is affordable to you, and space out your courses to fit your budget. We don’t do payment plans, but you can create your own payment plan by determining how many credits you can pay for each semester. Because our classes are completely online, students pay the same, low/in-state tuition regardless of location. There are no additional travel costs or living expenses required.
