Tuition, Fees and Refund Policies

Tuition and Financial Aid

Tuition, Textbooks, and Material Costs All StraighterLine courses require payment in advance. Additional materials may be required to complete the course, there are no hidden "student activity," "service," or other material fees that drive up the cost of your education. All required or suggested materials are listed on your course’s syllabus or on course description pages.

StraighterLine recommends the purchase of the text associated with each course. Without the text you may miss out on substantial practice, review and reading materials. Although textbooks prices vary by course, used copies, rentals and eBooks can substantially reduce the cost of course materials and therefore help to keep student costs as low as possible.

Partner College Fees Certain partner colleges require the payment of an application fee prior to awarding credit for a StraighterLine course. Please check with your Student Advisor to confirm whether your selected partner college will require an application fee. StraighterLine does not determine or exercise authority over partner college admissions fees.

Financial Aid StraighterLine does not directly participate in federally funded financial aid programs; therefore, StraighterLine tuition may not be paid for with funds dispersed through financial aid programs. Partner colleges do offer financial assistance to students once officially enrolled.

Employee Tuition Reimbursement StraighterLine is happy to partner with companies and employees interested in establishing tuition reimbursement relationships. Please refer to our Corporate Partnerships page for more information.
