What You Actually Pay

The annual costs outlined above can be covered in one of two ways. We recommend working with your family to figure out what amount you can afford to cover throughout the next year. From there, our financial services team can help navigate the financial aid and loan options available to help you cover the remaining balance. There is limited grant and scholarship money available for online students. Loans are borrowed money that has to be paid back. 

Once you are accepted into Briar Cliff University, your program, and completed your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®), you can expect to receive your personal financial aid award letter. Your award letter will show you the financial aid options available to you. Don't hesitate to contact our Financial Services Team, if you have any questions.
