Online college tuition

Ashworth’s affordable tuition works like this: choose the payment option that best suits your needs and budget! You can make a full payment – which offers savings on tuition – or choose interest-free monthly payments. Not sure how monthly payments will affect your budget? Our tuition calculator can break down your payments based on how much you pay per month so you have a better understanding of how long you’ll make payments toward your program cost.

Transfer Credits

How to transfer credits

If you're applying for a degree program, you may be able to use transfer credits from previous college and university courses. Transferring credits to your Ashworth program means you’ll have less courses to complete to graduate and save money on tuition! We also offer work and life experience credit, helping you save even more time and money! To see if your credits transfer into your online college degree, have an official copy of your transcript from your previous college or university sent to our registrar for evaluation.
