A graduate degree is an investment in your future, and we want to equip you to succeed.

• As a graduate student at Carson-Newman you'll receive access to the full Microsoft Office suite.

• Graduate students enrolled in at least six (6) credit hours qualify to apply for federal financial aid. If you qualify, you can borrow up to $20,500 per year, which is more than enough to cover the total program cost.

• You'll be assigned a personal faculty advisor, who will help draft a course plan tailored to your specific goals.

Payment Plans

Our no interest payment plans help reduce up-front costs. Enrolling in a payment plan allows you to make monthly payments on your direct charges instead of paying your full balance before classes start.
