Guaranteed Tuition Plan
Doctoral education is expensive nationwide and annual tuition increases make it difficult to plan financially. The Guaranteed Tuition Plan addresses this issue by guaranteeing that your tuition will not increase as long as you meet the minimum cohort units. The plan provides a great incentive to finish the program on time.
How the plan works: Those students who complete the minimum number of units expected annually of their cohort pay the same tuition rate each year they are enrolled in the program. Their tuition rate will be frozen at the guaranteed rate as long as they complete the minimum number of units required annually for their program.
Tuition Discount for CCCU Members and Affiliates
Doctoral Higher Education students who are employed by a member or affiliate of the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU) and whose institution pays at least 10 percent of their tuition are eligible for a 10 percent tuition discount from APU. Please ask your Graduate Student Financial Services counselor for the appropriate application form for this discount, as it must be verified annually prior to enrolling in courses. Students must take the initiative to apply for this discount and it cannot be applied retroactively.
