Understanding Tuition and Fees for Subscription-Based Professional Studies Programs

When considering the cost of pursuing the independent, subscription-based Associate of Science in Professional Studies or the Bachelor of Science in Professional Studies, it’s vital to account for the monthly tuition of $195.00. Additionally, there is a fee of $100.00 for each Assessment of Skills and Knowledge taken.

For the PR299: Capstone (associate’s), there is an added charge of $1,855.00, and for the PR 499: Capstone (bachelor’s), the cost is $2,226.00.

It’s essential to note that the tuition for the capstone course will be billed during the period the student is enrolled in the said course alongside the monthly tuition.

It is recommended to refer to the total cost of attendance for the specific program of interest.
