Keeping Your Education Affordable

You may access the Department of Education's Student Aid Information page, or guide for a more detailed understanding of student financial aid programs. Below is a brief summary of the financial aid programs in which CTU participates:
CTU Fast Track™
CTU Fast Track™ is a series of mini modules designed to test your knowledge of key course objectives allowing you the opportunity to earn college credit for what you already know. We may be able to help you save up to 30% on tuition and complete your studies up to 30% faster, depending on the number of Fast Track exams successfully passed.*
CTU includes the cost of books and fees in our published tuition.
CTU’s Master’s & Doctoral Advantage
If you are enrolled in a CTU Bachelor's or Master's degree program, you have the option of substituting two courses at the next level of study to get a head start on your Master's or Doctoral degree.
Your Long-Term Earnings Potential
The more you know, the farther you may be able to go! According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the level of education attained is directly related to lower rates of unemployment and greater median weekly earnings.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.
** Transfer credit is evaluated on an individual basis. Not all credits eligible to transfer. See the University Catalog for transfer credit policies. Financial aid is available for those who qualify.
