Tuition & Fees

Franklin University continually strives to offer a quality education at an affordable cost. By keeping your education affordable Franklin University helps you invest in your future. Our tuition rates reflect the University‚Äôs commitment to financial transparency and represent the total cost per hour, without numerous hidden fees (e.g. parking, student services, instruction) that you find at many other institutions. We help you maximize your investment from the very beginning with a generous transfer credit policy and competitive tuition rates. Learn more about financing and financial aid options by watching our Online Open House.

The University accepts all tuition and fees with the understanding that the student, in paying such tuition and fees, agrees to abide by all University policies and regulations.

Although every effort is made to provide accurate information on educational costs and fees, the University reserves the right to change its tuition, fees, and charges as economic conditions warrant. Those who fail to pay accounts when due are delinquent and may be dropped from classes. Students with delinquent financial obligations will not be permitted to enroll for subsequent trimesters. Past-due balances must be paid by cashier's check (money order), MasterCard, VISA or Discover. Personal checks are not accepted for past-due balances.
