Financial Aid & Costs
Our tuition is $625/credit hour, which means you can graduate with your MSP for less than $23,000.
In addition to low tuition costs, Cumberland offers a variety of financial aid and scholarship options. Once you’re accepted, our financial aid office will work with you to figure out the best option for you financially. CU offers payment plans, assistance with securing student loans and accepts employer tuition assistance.
Financial aid is available through the Federal Direct Stafford Loan program.
A qualifying student may obtain a Federal Stafford Loan through the U.S. Department of Education. The student must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and receive a student aid report.
The process begins in the university’s office of Student Financial Services. The student must not be in default at Cumberland University or any other institution, must take (enroll in) at least six (6) semester hours of study, and must be fully accepted in the MSP Program.
