Students who persist and successfully earn academic credits in their educational programs are eligible for a reduced tuition structure that decreases the students' actual tuition over the course of their program.

Associate's Level Programs

Based on the length of the associate degree program, students will receive a tuition reduction by 10% to 15%*. Students may qualify as long as they remain enrolled and participate in an eligible program of study, making them eligible for the reduced tuition within the program. Program lengths vary in the number of credits required. This reduction will occur once the following thresholds are reached:

complete greater than 45 credits

10% Tuition Reduction*

Students who complete greater than 45 credits will receive a 10% tuition reduction*

complete greater than 90 credits

15% Tuition Reduction*

Bachelor's and Higher Level Programs

Student's who persist and successfully earn academic credits in their educational programs are eligible for a tiered tuition structure that decreases the students' actual tuition cost, ranging from 10% to 20%*. Students may qualify as long as they remain enrolled and participate in an eligible program of study, making them eligible for the tiered tuition at different thresholds within the program. This reduction automatically occurs as the students reach the following thresholds.

complete greater than 25 percent credits

10% Tuition Reduction*

Students who successfully earn greater than 25% of the credits in their program will receive a 10% tuition reduction*

complete greater than 50 percent credits

complete greater than 75 percent credits

20% Tuition Reduction*

Program lengths vary in the number of credits required; the tuition credit occurs once credits earned surpass the percentages above. Reductions in tuition are applied at the beginning of each term (quarter). If the percentage of earned credit above is reached after the term starts, the reduction will occur at the start of the next term. All reduction calculations are based on the original cost per credit hour. Please visit the academic catalog for more information

For the purpose of eligibility for reduced tuition, transfer of credits that are accepted by the institution into a student's specific program of study will qualify towards credits that are successfully earned. If transfer of credit is received after a term begins, the reduction will occur at the start of the next term.

The following programs are not eligible for tiered tuition: Doctor of Ministry, Doctor of Pharmacy, Master of Medical Science in Anesthesia Science, Master of Science in Physician Assistant, all undergraduate and graduate Nursing programs, all post-graduate certificate programs, Master of Healthcare Administration, Master of Information Systems, Master of Public Administration, and Master of Public Health programs.

* Students utilizing partnership agreements or enrolling as a Continual Transfer Waiver will not be eligible for the reduced tuition. The students will receive the tuition reduction as outlined in the partnership agreement or transfer waiver.
