For those taking classes online there is a minimal $5 enrollment fee, whether auditing or taking classes for credit. The courses you pay for online will be permanently available to you through your student account.
For those taking classes for credit, there is an enrollment fee of $25, which covers the cost of establishing a portfolio. There is no enrollment fee for those auditing courses.
The cost for each course varies and is dependent upon the number of sessions, books, audio-visual, and other materials that are included. For those taking courses for credit, course fees include grading assignments and having access to staff to answer questions. Notification of course completion with credit hours will be issued after fulfilling the requirements for each class. Credit hours vary for each course, as the courses vary in length. Students can complete the courses at their own pace. These hours can be applied toward graduation from BWU. For those wanting to graduate, a separate graduation fee of $100 is necessary, but this can be paid when your final thesis topic is submitted for approval.
Courses can be audited for a reduced price, but if audited, course assignments will not be graded, staff will not be available to answer questions, nor certificates issued. Audited classes do not apply toward graduation.
