Degree Costs

Ministrymaker University has chosen to make its courses and degrees available with a flat, affordable tuition fee for each degree. All classes and credit hours within a degree program are provided with no hidden costs. All required class materials are available in the MMU library and are available at no extra cost.

For students from developing countries, whose cost of living is on a much lower scale than that of the United States, MMU will attempt to reduce their tuition cost proportionately. However, every student should make some investment toward their studies and degree.

Associate’s Degree – An associate’s degree requires 60 credit hours and is awarded upon completion of the prescribed course of study. The tuition for an associate’s degree is $295.00 USD.

Bachelor’s Degree – After earning an associate’s degree, a bachelor’s degree requires an additional 60 credit hours and is awarded upon completion of the prescribed course of study for a tuition of $395. If the student elects to go directly to a bachelor’s degree (120 credit hours), tuition will only be $495.00, a savings of $195.00.

Master’s Degree – After earning a bachelor’s degree, a master’s degree requires an additional 40 credit hours and is awarded upon completion of the prescribed course of study for a tuition of $595.00.

Doctorate Degree – After earning a master’s degree, doctorate degrees require an additional 40-60 credit hours (depending on the degree) and are awarded upon completion of the prescribed course of study for a tuition of $695.00.

A $25.00 non-refundable registration fee is required before being accepted as a student at Ministrymaker University. Transcripts, proof of life and military experience are required.

MMU requires all tuition to be paid in full through PayPal. Partial tuition payments may be arranged on an individual basis. No access to our library, transcripts, diplomas, certifications, grade reports, or other student records will be issued unless the student’s financial arrangements and/or requirements are current as agreed upon.

If the student fails to submit any completed coursework for a period of one year, their account will become inactive. A $50 reinstatement fee and any other past due balances are required to be paid to reactivate their account.
