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.
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.
In addition to the ultimate flexibility of our fully online courses, Simpson offers classes at its West Des Moines campus as well as its Indianola location. Many of our undergraduate programs offer a blended online and in-person format. Are you ready to get started yet?
