Tuition

Tuition shouldn’t be a guessing game. If you want to earn a degree, you need to know how much that degree is going to cost so you can compare your options and choose the school that is best for you—not only in terms of your education and career goals, but also in terms of your educational investment. Very rarely will schools list the total program cost on their tuition or financial aid pages. Instead, you will likely see educational costs listed as cost per credit or cost per course. You may be thinking to yourself that you can simply compare each school’s cost per course or cost per credit rate, but that won’t give you the full picture in terms of total investment.  Even when comparing very similar degrees—MBA to MBA or PhD in Psychology to PhD in Psychology—schools may have different course and credit requirements to complete the degree, and in most cases, it is up to you to do the math and calculate how much your program will really cost.

Save Money on Textbooks

The Course Materials Fee (CMF) is a benefit to you since you will have all your materials at the start of each course. Gathering your course textbooks and resource materials will not be your responsibility. NCU will take care of it for you. Students who receive Title IV funding do not have to wait for stipends to purchase textbooks and all students are better prepared for each class from the start.
