Tuition and fees calculator
You’ve chosen your degree program and know if you want to attend online or at a local campus. Now it’s time to determine how much you’ll invest in your education and how to pay for it. Use the tuition and expenses estimating, Financial Plan with Net Price Calculator, which will walk you step by step through the process.
Once in the Financial Plan tool, you’ll:
- Determine your estimated tuition and expenses based on your degree program and location.
- Enter your financial information to explore ways to pay for your tuition and expenses.
- Review your Financial Plan to see if you need to make adjustments.
It’ll be helpful for you to know about your taxes, savings and any prior college credits. The more specific the information you provide, the more accurate your estimate will be.

The education connection
Education pays — in more ways than one. According to the current national population survey conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the higher the level of education completed by an individual, the more positive effect it has on his or her median weekly earnings. In addition, there is less of a chance the individual will be unemployed. See how this is illustrated in the chart below.
Note: BLS data is not specifically applicable to alumni of University of Phoenix. This chart applies to a more general student and alumni population and does not solely or predominantly reflect University of Phoenix graduates whose median weekly earnings may be less than reported and whose unemployment rate may be higher.
