After being out of school for almost 20 years, the CTU Commitment Grant was instrumental in my decision to pursue my MBA! My tuition assistance, in combination with the Commitment Grant, covered 100% of my tuition. Achieving this degree has enhanced my management skills and provided me with financial acumen that is needed to make solid business decisions. Katie, 2021

1 The ability to reduce time in school and/or reduce tuition towards the full cost of a degree program depends on the number of CTU Fast Track exams successfully passed. Fast Track program credits are non-transferable. Not all programs are eligible for possible 30% reduction in time and money. Courses eligible are subject to change. Students should not rely on potential Fast Track savings or eligibility when making an enrollment decision.

1 The Commitment Grant may cover the remaining cost of completing a CTU degree after applying the portion covered by the Corporate partner's employee tuition assistance. If students elect to take out federal loans, they are no longer eligible for the Commitment Grant, and thus not eligible for the debt-free education option.
