  • Ways to Save

    Cost of this degree may be reduced based on one or more of the following:

    Students in CTU associate degree programs may bring a wealth of knowledge to the classroom. CTU Fast Track lets students earn college credit for what they already know. As a result, students can complete their degree up to 30% faster. Just as important, by passing multiple Fast Track exams, students can save up to 30% on tuition because they won’t have to pay for the classes they test out of. There’s no additional cost for the exams and no penalty if a student fails to pass.*

    Take a look at the list of current Fast Track courses and see how many courses you may be able to earn credit for.

    *The ability to reduce time in school and/or reduce tuition depends on the number of Fast Track tests successfully passed. Fast Track program credits are unlikely to transfer. Not all programs are eligible for possible 30% reduction in time and money. Courses eligible subject to change.
