*This is only an estimate, using general program
pricing. Your price may be higher or lower depending on
your specialization, transfer credits, tuition discounts, and (in
FlexPath) the speed at which you move through the program. Fees,
including application fees and resource kits, are not included in
this estimate. The GuidedPath prices show the tuition you would pay
if you brought in the average number of transfer credits or the
maximum allowed transfer credits. The FlexPath prices show the
tuition you would pay if you brought in an average number of
transfer credits and you moved at the speed of a typical FlexPath
student or as quickly as the fastest FlexPath students (90th
percentile). New or recently revised programs base their estimate on
comparable programs. Military Tuition Assistance (TA) is not
available for FlexPath.
