Information on tuition, employment rates, credit transfer, and accreditation
Tuition rate is locked in for continuously enrolled students. A change in the number of credits taken during enrollment in any quarter may lead to different prices if a student moves from part-time to full-time or vice versa.
Tuition reduction varies by program and state. 24% is the maximum programmatic tuition reduction for MN students calculated by percentage change between new MN FT pricing versus previous pricing. On average, tuition reduction is 12% nationally. (MN= 18%, FL= 11%, IL= 10%, ND=11%, WI= 11%).
Tuition reduction does not include $150 course fee.
Time to Complete
Time to complete is dependent on number of credits transferred and credits taken per quarter.
