    How it works


    Students in Ursuline's online program are charged by the credit hour, not a flat rate fee for full-time attendance.

    At $550 per credit hour, you get a private school education at a public school rate! The RN to BSN rate is $360.


    You have the flexibility to finish your degree at your own pace so you can fit school into your life, not the other way around!

    Our online programs offer nine different start dates a year and each course is a focused five week session, which means you can start whenever it is convenient for you, or take a term off and pick up again five weeks later.

    Interested in enrolling?
    You should apply within two weeks of your intended start session. Find the best start date for you by viewing the 23/24 Online (UCAP) start dates.


    Offering our programs online means that you can do your class work any time day or night. Before work, on your lunch break, after the kids go to bed, its up to you!

    Maximum Credit

    We are going to award you the maximum credit for what you’ve already accomplished in the classroom. And through our Prior Learning Assessment, you may earn alternative credits for your learning experiences outside the classroom setting.

    We accept credit from:

    • Regionally accredited institutions. Students with technical/trade-school credit are eligible to receive up to 20 credit hours towards General Electives.

    • If you have a conferred associate's degree, there are additional transfer benefits for you. Get an unofficial transcript evaluation here.

    • Alternative credit options including workplace training, military training, portfolio-based assessment, test-outs, and the College Level Examination Program (CLEP).

    Financial Aid

    Online programs are financial aid eligible. Learn more about financial aid opportunities available to students. Contact our Financial Aid Office with any questions: 440.646.8309.


    Regardless of where you started your college journey, we are committed to being the college where you finish your degree.

    Each online student is paired with an advisor and a counselor to help him/her through the challenges of college while living a busy life. Our dedicated team will help each student navigate the admission process, register for classes, and lead him/her on a path to success.
