High-Quality and Flexible Education That’s Accessible

Providing transparency for your investment, here is a breakdown of the tuition and fees students will encounter when enrolled in our programs.

Domestic Tuition Cut By 37%-40%

In a move to make education significantly more affordable, University of the Potomac reduced domestic tuition costs in 2017 for associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degrees.

The tuition for a domestic associate’s degree is now $16,650 and $33,300 for a bachelor’s degree. Tuition for a master’s degree is now $17,550. 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.

Make Your Education Affordable With No Interest, Monthly Payment Plan

It is our goal for every student to graduate with little or no debt. Each month you’ll make only one payment, as low as $350, applied towards your tuition and fees. The first monthly payment is simply due on the first day of class, so all you need to get started is a valid credit or debit card.

For information on this and other options to help manage educational costs, contact a UOTP admissions representative today at 888-635-1121 or admissions@potomac.edu.

* This program is only available to domestic students and may not be able to be used in combination with other financial aid or loan programs. Please check with a University of the Potomac admission’s advisor to see if you are eligible.
