Finance Your Education
Did you know that the average tuition rate for a private, four-year college is $23,000 per year? Did you know that the average cost to attend a public four-year college is $6,000 per year? It’s true (see the College Board). If these numbers seem staggering, take a deep breath. You can earn your degree at Vision for about $2,500 per year for a 120 credit undergraduate degree and about $1,600 per year for a 36 credit hour graduate degree. You do the math — that’s 90% lower than the average private college!
What’s even more surprising is what students are paying in student loan interest. With a standard student loan with the typical 6.8% interest rate, you’ll pay an additional $76,000 in interest over 20 years of $700/month payments. Wow.

Interest-Free (0%) Tuition Payment Plans
Full tuition is payable upon enrollment unless other arrangements are approved by the Business Office in advance. No student will be considered officially enrolled until satisfactory arrangements have been made. The University recognizes that in some instances a definite need for installment payments of tuition exists and, therefore, allows students to pay the tuition in installments, after making a required down payment. When time payments are desired, students are asked to discuss payment arrangements with the Business Office. In order to qualify for an installment payment agreement and begin a degree program, the student must make the required minimum down payment and agree to make monthly tuition payments. Tuition payments must be received each calendar month until tuition is paid in full or be subject to a late charge. Neither a diploma nor a transcript will be issued until the student’s obligation has been paid in full. All students must conform to their payment agreements.
Convenient financing of your education is available through Vision Managed Account (VMA), or through all major credit cards. Just complete the financial information form that will accompany your program.
Students are required to enter into an Enrollment Agreement with VIU upon entrance into the first class. The agreement is a contract signed by the student and a school official that gives information on costs, rights to cancel, and the refund policy.
