Save on College Tuition With Purdue Global’s Tuition Cap

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. Our Tuition Cap program is just one of the ways we are trying to do that.

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

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% of the total cost of your degree (transfer credit maximums apply; ask an Admissions Advisor for details).* Learn about commonly asked questions.
