Frequently Asked Questions

How much does an online degree cost?

Costs vary by program and residency. Visit the Student Financial Services to see current tuition rates. However, prior credit and experience, scholarships, and other financial aid options mean many students pay less for their degree. Financial Aid counselors are ready to walk you through the process, consider your options, and find ways to bring costs down.

The time needed to complete your degree will depend on which program you choose, if you attend full-time or part-time, as well as any previously earned credits or practical experience. Our Admissions team and Credit for Prior Learning experts are ready to help you develop a plan for you to finish your degree on your schedule.

A degree can make a big difference to your career trajectory. Whether you are building on an existing degree with new skills or starting an entirely new degree, USM will provide the targeted education you need for the next steps of your career.
