Tuition & Expenses

Education is an investment in your future, resulting in higher earning potential and greater career choices

We actively work to keep costs down while maintaining high standards. Chamberlain assists students in developing plans for financing their education through a combination of financial-assistance programs (if eligible), family contributions, employer tuition reimbursement (when available) and Chamberlain payment plans.

Financing Your Education with Chamberlain

There are various tuition and financial assistance options available to help you pursue your education. Our admission representatives can help find a plan that fits your budget. With our guidance, more than 90% of Chamberlain students received some form of financial aid in the 2016/2017 school year.

"The Chamberlain faculty are always incredibly helpful and supportive. The personal attention I get every time I call exceeds expectations."
