Low Tuition

In a move to make education significantly more affordable, University of the Potomac (UOTP) is reducing domestic tuition costs by 55 percent for associate’s and bachelor’s degrees and 37 percent for master’s degrees.

“It has long been in the hearts of our board, ownership, and faculty to reduce the burden of high tuition costs for our students,” said Dr. Clinton Gardner, President of UOTP.

Beginning with UOTP’s September session, the tuition for a domestic associate’s degree will be $14,400 and $28,800 for a bachelor’s degree. Tuition for master’s degrees will be $16,200. A student’s tuition rate will be locked in for the duration of the degree program. Students also pay a resource fee which includes all e-textbooks, access to UOTP online library and many other tools to help enhance their educational experience.


Cross Education

University of the Potomac is an independent institution focused on providing education to a diverse, multi-cultural student population.

Fully Online: Online programs allow you to study when and where you like. There are no scheduled classes, so students work with their professors through UOTP’s digital learning platform. This is great for those who like independence and flexibility.

Once-a-Week on Campus: Allowing for flexibility, the hybrid option requires students to attend class with their professors once-a-week. This helps build interpersonal communication and collaboration skills along with working through digital platforms.

International Campus Programs: UOTP’s fully on-campus programs all meet the DHS/DOS requirements for students with F1 visas.
