Tuition & Costs

There are no hidden fees for students in the accelerated program. Students pay for tuition and books only and financial aid is available for most students. In addition, our transfer-friendly policy means that you could take up to 75 hours towards your degree from Kirkwood or Hawkeye Community College. That's 75 hours at the community college tuition rate.

2016-17 academic year are
 $450 per credit hour.

There are several common loan programs that students may be eligible to receive. In addition to financial aid, students may use tuition reimbursement from their employers. We encourage you to check with your employer to see if you are eligible. Students will have an additional 45 days after the end of the course to pay the portion their employer reimburses.
