How much will it cost?

Midway University works hard to provide quality degree programs at an affordable price for our students. Our online and evening undergraduate and graduate programs’ tuition is based on the number of credit hours taken each module. You can review our current credit hour tuition rates and fees online.

Make sure you get the whole picture before making your decision. First, complete your FAFSA so you can see what financial aid you are eligible to receive and complete your application. Once you are admitted to Midway University, you can meet with our Financial Aid Office to discuss all the eligible aid (federal, state and institutional) that you have access to. This is the only way to figure out the true cost and if you will have any out-of-pocket expenses to cover. We also have specific resource information for military students.

Can I transfer credits from another school if I am accepted into this program?

Midway University accepts transfer credits from regionally accredited institutions that are 100-level or higher with a grade of “C” or better.  At the time of admission, our Admissions Counselors will provide an unofficial evaluation of your transfer credit.  An official evaluation will be completed by the Registrar’s Office after acceptance.

Students can earn up to 21 credit hours towards an undergraduate degree program based on assessment. Review the Credit for Prior Learning webpage or section in the catalog for more information.
