Frequently asked questions
Yes, we’re serious about seriously affordable education. That’s why Degrees+ is purposefully priced at just $6,370/year, which is well below the full Pell Grant of $7,395. With tuition this low, it opens up 3 paths to fully funded college:
1. Federal financial aid (including Pell Grants available to those who qualify—1 in 2 Americans do)
2. Employer education benefits (including Guild and Amazon Career Choice)
3. Military education benefits (including the GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon Program)
If you’re eligible for any of these benefits, you could earn your degree through Degrees+ and pay $0 out of pocket.
Plus, Degrees+ tuition includes everything you need. No textbooks. No hidden fees. No nonsense. Because we believe the true cost of college should be transparent and planning for college should be simple.
