Degree Costs

Ministrymaker University has chosen to make its courses and degrees available with one low-cost tuition fee for each degree offered. Each class within a degree program will be provided with no hidden costs. 

For students enrolling 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.

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.
