National University's Partnership with the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP)

National University offers FOP members who are interested in "online" programs, a tuition rate that is 20% less than the University's standard tuition rate currently being charged for online classes at the time each online course is offered. This means that online tuition has dropped from $1,386.00 per course (4.5 quarter units) for the undergraduate degrees, to $1,108.00 per course, and the tuition for their graduate degrees has dropped from $1,575.00 per course (4.5 quarter units) to $1,260.00 per course. These rates are subject to normal tuition increases, as indicated in the most current version of the Catalog.
