Note: Anaheim University makes certain provisions in order to provide access to library resources and library services for all students enrolled directly through Anaheim University. However, students enrolled in Anaheim University’s online graduate degree programs are required to have an additional reserve fund to be used for the purchase of journals and research - materials that will aid them in their studies by providing information specific to their unique areas of interest and research - and to provide access to software and other resources that may help them in the completion of their studies. The research reserve fund is $2,000 for doctoral students to be used over the duration of their program. Students are not required to spend the entire research fund - only that amount necessary in order to carry out their research.

The above itemizes all of the fees and charges for which the student is responsible. Please see the Policies and Procedures section for our refund policy.

Each course is US $1,500 for tuition excluding books, materials and other costs listed above. Students must pay the required tuition fee prior to commencing their next course. The student is not required to pay this tuition fee until the student wishes to register for his or her next course.

Students may make payment by check, credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover), money order or bank transfer (the student is responsible for any transactions fees imposed by the institution).
