The program cost varies slightly depending on the entry date and the academic progress for each student:
- August entry combines two semesters plus two courses during our summer term to complete the degree using federal student loans.
- February entry combines spring semester, summer term, and fall semester (ends mid-December) using federal student loans. Students complete their degree via one distance education course at no cost or doing optional curricular practical training during employment, at no cost.
Personal Expenses and Books Federal student loans are available to cover the additional estimated cost of $7,800 per year.
Federal Student Loans Your FAFSA automatically qualifies you for the majority of federal student loans for this program. The remaining portion is composed of Federal Graduate PLUS loans which require “no adverse credit” or an endorser. Repayment begins after your enrollment ends.
In case a student may require additional distance education courses to rectify academic deficiencies, extra distance education courses are $2,000 paid from student job earnings, not federal student loans.
Education Tax Incentives are available as money-saving tax benefits to assist in reducing your cost of education. More about education tax benefits
