Touro University Worldwide designed its 100% online programs to provide students the opportunity to earn a degree online while also making it affordable. This commitment is part of TUW’s mission to promote social justice, intellectual pursuit, and philanthropic duty.
TUW is committed to transparency with tuition and fees. Current students pay $400 per credit hour at the associate and bachelor degree levels, $500 at the master degree level, and $700 at the doctorate level.
However, TUW students can reduce costs in many ways. For example, military students pay lower rates. And graduates from partner schools may earn more transfer credits that can cut thousands of dollars from the cost of earning a degree.
The first step for determining potential cost savings begins with TUW enrollment specialists who work with students on financial aid issues.
Benefits For Students Who Earn a Degree Online
Choosing a college is one of the biggest life decisions people face. For a growing number of students, online programs offer the best academic path. That’s because online programs provide financial value to students in many ways.
- Flexible schedule. An online program allows students to plan classwork around their work and life schedules, allowing them to keep working full time while earning a degree.
- Save money on travel. The cost of traveling to and from campus to attend a class quickly adds up. Online programs also eliminate on-campus housing costs.
- Save money on childcare. Online programs reduce the need to pay for babysitters or place kids in childcare for parents.
While it’s not a direct financial benefit, online courses also give students more time by eliminating travel to and from class. That’s time they can spend ontheirhobbies or with family and friends.
