Our personal advisors will help design just the right curriculum for you!

Since every student has different needs, and some transfer in previously earned credit hours (up to 90), we will work with each student to create an individualized package that includes all financial aid options, scholarships, VA education benefits, etc., in which you are eligible. Our advisors can evaluate your transcripts and see what credits will transfer. Many employers also offer tuition reimbursement, and we can help you better understand your organization’s benefits.

An estimated cost of attendance (COA) for our accelerated undergraduate programs is available here. Included in the Saints resource fee is a $120 to $160 per course stipend that will apply toward the cost of your course materials.
