Transfer or Test Out of Courses and Lower Your Tuition

  • Students may complete up to 40 credit hours through CLEP and DSST exams which has the potential to make the BSIT degree even more affordable and take less time to complete. See the School of IT Guide to CLEP and DSST.
  • Students may transfer college course credit previously earned at other accredited institutions

Credit for Prior Learning

Prior learning is learning gained through life or work outside of structured higher educational courses. Many people learn through their experiences in life such as those in professional endeavors (business, the military, or other work/training experiences) or through other educational experiences (community work, family, travel, or personal study). For more information see the Prior Learning Assessment page.

Financial Aid

Financial assistance is available through MGA's Financial Aid Office.

NOTE: The eTuition rate is currently set at $30 per credit hour above the applicable prevailing rate ($127.27 per credit hour for the 2013-2014 academic year). The eCore tuition rate is currently set at $189 per credit hour. Core and eTuition hours do not count in the calculation to reach the 1 semester hour recreation and wellness fee threshold or the 4 semester hours activity fee threshold at which these fees are assessed.
