Where Opportunity Meets Affordability.

We understand that the pandemic has not only caused health implications, it has affected families’ financial positions and disrupted events and plans that at one time seemed a sure thing. As the university with the lowest tuition of any state school – along with small class sizes, and modern, spacious residence halls -- we are dedicated to a safe, affordable and rewarding college experience for all our students.

We have implemented new financial measures to aid students and their families during this difficult time and remain committed to clear and direct communication with our students, meaning no hidden or padded fees once you arrive on campus. Our faculty and professional staff are eagerly awaiting your questions and to work with you and your family to develop a strategy to help reach your goals.

Our financial measures include:

  • Tuition freeze for Fall 2020
  • 1:1 guidance with a financial aid counselor
  • Financial aid and scholarships available
  • Transfer student scholarships
  • Free application

While we understand and applaud your caution, we are taking every precaution to make sure our students are protected and safe. If your plans have changed, we’re still planning on an enriching and rewarding college experience. Don’t put your degree on hold. Apply for free today. Your future awaits.
