Tuition Guarantee

To help reduce the time and cost of achieving an associate degree, we’ve created a Tuition Guarantee that locks in tuition for three years, or until completion of your degree, whichever comes first, for students taking at least 15 credit hours. Our goal is to help you get into the workforce or transfer more quickly, so you can spend more time doing the things you love.
