Announcements and updates
We understand that your graduate education is about a goal, a plan, an ambition. And nothing should derail your pursuit of your dreams. Our updated program formats and pricing are a direct response to the many requests for new options.
Our MBS program is 33 credits, with the cost of tuition at $1,040/credit for the online program and $1,345 for the on-campus program. Additional student fees apply.
Our quarterly semester system provides greater flexibility. At our Scranton campus, students attend classes full-time and complete the degree in about 10 to 12 months. Classes are also available online in full-time and part-time format. Either way, you'll be on track to complete the program on your timeline, whether you're looking to apply to professional school (such as medical, dental or optometry) or gain entry into a health-related field.
As an online student, you won’t miss out on the camaraderie and social interaction of on-campus life. We’ve made our online environment richer and more interactive, and our faculty and educational technology team are committed to delivering effective, rigorous instruction. Watch a video about the MBS online experience. Also, check out our Distance Education – Student Hub for information on how to succeed as an online student.
