The University will provide each student with the major completion sheet
that tells them how to complete their major. Tuition covers the cost of
tests, grading, diploma printing and 1 final transcript. Additional transcripts
can be requested at anytime, for a fee of $25. Books are not included in
the tuition cost and may be purchased by the student at any bookstore or
checked out from a local library. Access to the internet is required to download
tests. Internet access is not included with tuition and must be obtained
by the student.

Paying tuition, like at any university, does not guarantee graduation.
You must pass all the tests for your degree and major then submit a graduation
request for before you can get your degree.
We do have a simple payment plan:
Half & Half: With this plan half of your tuition is due at
the time of enrollment. The other half is due 60 days later or after the
first test is completed, whichever comes first. If you have qualified life
experience and are taking no tests you can wait the 60 days to pay the rest
of your tuition but you will not receive a degree till all financial obligations
If you choose the payment plan you will only receive the major completion
sheet up to your first test. Once the second payment is made you will receive
the rest of the sheet. Payments must be made on time. Late payments are
assessed a $65 late fee. Once your payment is 30 days overdue, you forfeit
all tuition paid and you are dropped from enrollment.
Financial aid, in the form of loans, can be obtained from any bank but the University itself does not provide financial aid.
Once accepted you can pay tuition by credit card (Visa or Master Card),
Paypal or money order. When you have been accepted you will be emailed a
tuition payment form. All you need to do is fill it out and fax, email or
mail it to the University. (Money orders must be mailed with the form.)
Sorry, no personal cheques.
You fill out a Degree Verification form and the requesting party receives
the verification. Federal law prohibits verification of educational documents
by phone or email. Federal Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act of
1974 and subsequent amendments dictate that your educational records cannot
be released without your written consent. The law itself prohibits verification
of your educational records by phone, email or online. Don't be conned into
believing such verification is legal. Employers know the law!!! Verification
of your educational documents can be done only by mail. NO EXCEPTIONS! You
can email the university for a Degree Verification form at anytime after
your degree is awarded.
