Earn your advanced degree and professional credentials with a university committed to creating high-value programs.
Not only are we known for keeping our tuition costs relatively low across the board, we also help students overcome financial hurdles with deferred tuition, tuition discounts and other types of financial aid. We pursue partnerships to reduce student expenses to keep our region’s workforce strong. Additionally, we partner with select organizations and companies from a number of industries, including healthcare and criminal justice, to provide discounted tuition for our region’s talented workforce, which you may be able to use to maximize your savings.
If you’re a part-time or full-time graduate or professional student, you may be eligible for federal and/or alternative/private student loans. If you have any questions along the financial aid process, we’re here to provide answers and help you grow your path to opportunity.
If your employer provides tuition reimbursement benefits, we can defer your bill payment. Contact our business office for more information about tuition deferment.
