Upfront Transparency

We clearly outline the total cost of attendance — tuition, fees, books and supplies (if any) — so there are no surprises.

For most of our master’s programs, the total cost of attendance is still under $9,500. Many other institutions can exceed $20,000 in tuition alone, never mind fees and all the rest.

Plus, our online programs don’t require travel or residency requirements, helping you save even more.
