Tuition & Fees

New Lower Tuition

We know that adult students have a number of concerns when deciding whether or not to finish their degree. Chief among these concerns is affordability. At Simpson, we understand.

While other colleges are raising their prices for continuing education, beginning Fall of 2018, Simpson is reducing tuition, making us the most affordable evening and online private education in the state!

It’s all part of Simpson’s commitment to make our programs accessible and affordable for all students. And it’s why we call it The Simpson Solution for Working Adults.
