Multiple start times offer maximum flexibility

Evening and online classes are offered in either a 16-week semester or an accelerated 8-week term. Most of our classes have multiple start times throughout the year, including summer classes. Evening courses meet on our West Des Moines Campus, typically meeting one night per week.

At Simpson College, we care about affordability. We have priced our tuition rate to be the most affordable online private college option in the state. As a student you can take advantage of personalized financial aid counseling, customized tuition installment plans, or if you have employer reimbursement, you can delay payment up to 45 days after your course ends!

Simpson is a military-friendly school. All service members and Veterans have a personalized VA Certifying Official and Service Coordinator that ensures educational benefits are fully awarded.

On top of that, it is always free to apply and there is never a deposit required.

Affordable 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.

That is why we have lowered our 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.

Employer reimbursement


Des Moines employers have confidence in a Simpson education. That is why more than 60 businesses have contributed to the cost of their employees' tuition at Simpson College. Even better, Simpson allows an interest-free grace period for students receiving employer reimbursement so that you have up to 45 days after the conclusion of the term to submit the employer's portion of tuition costs.
