Our Value

Affordable. Our tuition is among the lowest in the state. With a $176.60 cost per credit hour, you could save thousands compared to other colleges. Planning to transfer to a 4-year institution? Starting your first two years with our low rate can help you get your bachelor’s degree with significantly less debt. In fact, if you choose to complete our 3+1 business program with Franklin University, you could pay our low tuition rate up to three out of the four years – an exceptional savings.

Convenient. Earn a degree that fits around your busy schedule. With the flexibility to complete course assignments day or night, you won’t have to sacrifice time with your family, or limit work obligations. Every aspect of your degree can be completed from the privacy of your home or even the local coffee shop.

Supportive. Whether you need academic advising, tutoring, or career services help, we’ve got you covered. We want you to feel connected to our college so even though you won’t be physically on our campus, we will work tirelessly to give you the same services you would receive as a traditional in-seat student. Being supportive means not viewing you as a number, which is why as an online student you will have a personal Student Success Champion who will work with you throughout your program. We encourage web conference advising sessions to ensure students will never feel disconnected and always feel their voice is heard.

Financial Aid. 72% of our students received grants and scholarships during the 2017-18 school year. Many students had their total costs reduced significantly. In some cases, students received their degrees completely free. With our already low tuition, your financial aid will go a long way at North Central State Online!

Accredited. Choose a college with a history of excellence. With over 50 years of experience and a longstanding accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission, you can feel confident that our college will exceed your expectations. Our institution works tirelessly to impart the most up to date industry standards to our students and frequently assesses our programs for continuous improvement.

Transferable. We have a growing partnership with other colleges and universities to ensure a seamless transfer into 4-year degree programs. Depending on where you transfer, most if not all of your credits will transfer toward a bachelor’s degree, which saves time and money. Some of our partnerships include: Ashland University, Franklin University, Ohio University, and Western Governors University.
