Through this innovative partnership with Gannon University, ECUA is able to provide these associate degrees for a total of $12,000 in tuition and
fees for the entire 2 year period necessary to earn the degree. This is a significant reduction to what a Gannon University degree typically costs and
is comparable to the cost for similar programming at community colleges. To qualify for the reduced tuition rate, students must be residents of PA.
This is an open enrollment program, which means that SAT scores are not required for admission; students simply need a high school diploma or
GED to apply for admission.
