Our Tuition Cap Lowers the Cost of Your Education

At Purdue Global, we are constantly searching for ways to help students seek a brighter future, and that includes making sure our tuition costs are as low as possible. That is why we are introducing the Purdue Global Tuition Cap.

How it works: When you enroll in a participating Tuition Cap program at Purdue Global, your tuition will be capped, ensuring that you only pay a fixed amount for your education. Once you hit your cap, you will no longer have to make any payments for the rest of your education at Purdue Global, even if you have to retake a course, as long as you meet and maintain all enrollment requirements for the Purdue Global Tuition Cap program. 

Note: transfer credit maximums apply; ask an Admissions Advisor for details.

Why it helps: Not only will you know exactly how much your education will cost when you enroll, but our Tuition Cap will also help you save 33%* off the total cost of your tuition. It’s part of our promise to help make college education more accessible and more affordable. Click here for answers to commonly asked questions.

*Enrollees in programs eligible for Tuition Cap pricing will pay the same tuition cost per quarter credit hour and fees as for other undergraduate programs/enrollees plus $200 per-term administrative fee and other fees. The total cost of the program, though, will be capped, other than applicable background check and/or lab fees. Savings based on the difference between capped and noncapped programs for 180 or 90 credits for bachelor’s or associate’s degrees, respectively. Students who receive transfer credit typically study for significantly fewer terms and do not receive maximum savings. Contact an Admissions Advisor for details.

Tuition Cap Transfer Credit Maximums: Enrollees in Tuition Cap programs who transfer in more than 35 or 70 credits for the associate’s or bachelor’s programs, respectively, are not enrolled under Tuition Cap and will not be charged the $200 per-term Administration Fee. If they are required to repeat courses, take additional courses due to prerequisite requirements, take course assessments, or take fewer than two courses per term, they may exceed the $22,500 or $45,000 total for the associate’s or bachelor’s, respectively, Tuition Cap program of study.
