  • Online study for degrees students includes a distance fee of $150 per semester. Guest or non-degree students pay a guest fee of $80 per semester.
  • Additional fees may apply based on services such as course fees (listed in course schedule), prior learning assessed or late fees (see all fees here). Check each statement, even after paying in full, as fees may be added in the next month following the service rendered. 

Seniors (65 or older) may request a 50% discount for up to three credits annually.  Other discounts may apply as negotiated through employers and various agreements for specific groups of students or specific programs. Please use the contact information provided on individual program pages to check what might be available to you!

Up to 94 credits transferred can be applied to a bachelor's degree, up to 47 credits to an associate degree. A maximum of 6 graduate credits may be transferred  into a graduate program (transfer & prior learning a max of 20% of degree credit total). Personal and professional development aligned to specific course outcomes may be assessed to earn credit for prior learning, saving time and money.

Online undergraduate programs are all discounted so no Andrews University scholarships apply.  Unless noted for a specific campus, graduate scholarships apply to online programs as well.

If living in the USA, research external scholarships, follow directions and apply! Also seek out scholarships through your employer, church, and other organizations in your town and country.  Consider these tips for affording college, and review all financial aid options for online students.
