What Does It Cost?

Affordable and Flexible Pricing Plans

One of Verity’s main goals is maintaining affordability for our students. However, we understand that a college degree is always a considerable investment. That’s why we know it’s important for you to understand exactly where the money will be going and what you will be receiving for each dollar invested. To better help explain that costs that a Verity student will face, we’ve broken it down to three segments: Verity Costs, Accreditation Fees, and Testing Fees.

Total Cost  =

 

We’ve all heard the saying, “If it seems too good to be true, then it probably is.” So, when you hear about a degree that can be earned in “half the time and for a fraction of the cost,” the natural reaction is to assume that this claim is too good to be true. Well, in this case, it’s not. Here’s a comprehensive breakdown of the costs our students pay as they earn their college degree in comparison with the Average Public University and the Average Christian College.

Verity Costs

This money goes towards what we call “The Verity Experience.” This includes curriculum developed from a biblical worldview, library access, academic advisement and instruction, a supportive Christian environment, room and board costs, and all the other awesome things Verity has to offer that money simply can’t buy.

Testing Fees

Credit-by-exam is a critical component of our accelerated approach to academics. These fees include exam fees, transcript fees, and proctoring fees. Proctoring fees are waived for Verity students that test on campus.

Thomas Edison State University (TESU) Fees

Accreditation fees include course fees and the enrollment fees paid to the degree-issuing college (typically, that’s TESU for our students).

Verity Costs       +

We LOVE our Campus Program and believe it to be well worth the extra costs. Sure, the dorms are nice, but most valuable is the community of fellow-believers that our staff and students have the opportunity to join.

Testing Fees   +

Credit-by-Exams are an integral part of our students’ academic journey. We have been able to achieve an incredibly high success rate for our students built on our curricula and the modular approach. At Verity, we have a track record for success, having administered over 10,000 exams with an average passing rate of over 90%.

Testing fees can be broken down into three areas: Exam Fees, Proctor Fees, and Transcript Fees. The Exam Fee is the cost paid to CLEP, DSST, etc. for any credit-by-exam test the student takes. Proctor Fees are paid to the testing site where the exam is taken. Transcript fees are typically one-time fees paid to CLEP and/or DSST to have any credits transferred to the degree-issuing institution prior to the student’s graduation.

Verity students earn their accredited bachelor’s degree from Thomas Edison State University (TESU). The unique partnership that Verity College Education holds with TESU yields several benefits including in-state tuition and special enrollment privileges for our younger students who wouldn’t otherwise meet the age requirement set for their adult learners. The TESU fees listed below have been lumped together for your benefit and represent one-time costs such as application, enrollment, technology, and graduation fees. In addition to credits earned through credit-by-examinations such as CLEP and DSSTs, various degrees also require higher-level credits earned through coursework. An estimation of the cost per credit earned through coursework as part of Verity’s approach is listed below for you to compare with the costs of a traditional four-year bachelor’s degree program.
