SJR State’s $10,000 bachelor's degree program is a 2+2-style program. Students who meet the requirements will receive a tuition waiver or scholarship for their last 20 credits during their final two semesters, reducing the total cost to less than $10,000.

The $10,000 cost does not include special fees, lab fees, textbooks, credit hours outside of a student’s program of study, prep or repeat courses, or other associated program costs which are the responsibility of the student.
