A High Quality Affordable Education

The Public Administration Program is recognized for its value to the region by elected officials, community leaders, and senior executives. 

The Florida Resident Access Grant (FRAG) makes pursuing your degree exceptionally affordable. For the 2013-2014 academic year, total tuition for this program is $3,000.00 or $1,500 a semester. Full-time students who qualify for the FRAG receive $2,500.00 towards the cost of tuition. This year, the FRAG pays 83% of the cost of annual student tuition. The total out of pocket cost to students is $500 for the entire academic year or $250 a semester. Many students are also able to access tuition reimbursement from their employer to help towards the cost of the $250 tuition each semester. Nowhere else in Northeast Florida can working professionals earn their Bachelor’s degree in public administration at a prestigious private college for $500 a year.

Tuition for the 2014/2015 academic year is expected to be the same or a very similar amount.

Classes are conveniently scheduled for working professionals in the evenings and on select Saturdays.
