Affordable, Locked-in Tuition

Reasonably Priced Tuition

CalSouthern was founded in 1978 with a vision: to make education of exceptional quality affordable and convenient for non-traditional students—students who are often adults juggling career and family obligations.

That vision still guides CalSouthern today. We offer an unmatched value in education with affordable tuition that will never increase as long as you remain enrolled in a degree or certificate program. Reasonably priced tuition together with a choice of no-interest payment plans provides an alternative to soaring tuition and the burden of student debt!

Please contact CalSouthern today to discuss your degree plan, transfer credits, estimated total cost and your interest-free payment options. Our enrollment advisors are available to answer any questions you may have.
