Tuition and Fees

The total cost for ABTU programs consists of three components, tuition, technology fee, and registration fee.  To provide all ABTU students with a simple pricing structure, all semester credit hour (SCH) bearing courses, regardless of program level, have the same tuition cost per credit hour.  Any increases in tuition levels, or the course materials fee will apply only to students enrolling after the increase is placed into effect.  The table below outlines the total cost of all credit-bearing courses at ABTU. Fees for registration and optional services are listed on the Tuition & Financial Aid page of the ABTU website and are non-refundable.
