Costs and Financial Aid

Graduate Tuition

2020–21 Academic Year Rate

$1,236 per credit

Tuition rates are for the 2020–21 academic year and are assessed every semester of enrollment. The program office pays for residency lodging and meals.

Financial Aid and Military Benefit Opportunities

Some students may qualify for financial aid. Take the time to research financial aid, scholarships, and payment options as you prepare to apply. Military service members, veterans, and their spouses or dependents should explore these potential education benefits and financial aid opportunities, as well.

Scholarship Opportunities

A few highly competitive merit-based scholarships are available to Online MBA students who have demonstrated extraordinary personal, professional, or academic achievements, or the ability to contribute a unique perspective to the class. Students who have been accepted to the program are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships. Because all applicants are automatically considered for a scholarship, you are encouraged to submit your completed application portfolio at least three months prior to the application deadline. Scholarship award decisions will be made by the Online MBA admissions committee.
