Save up to 25% on your tuition

The Strayer Graduation Fund rewards your success with savings. For every three classes you complete, you’ll earn a course on us to be redeemed at the end of your program—saving you up to 25% on your bachelor’s or master's degree.

Education that’s easier on your wallet

  • All bachelor’s and master's students, excluding JWMI, are eligible and automatically enrolled (with no GPA requirement).
  • For every three classes you pass, you’ll earn one on us. Your earned credits are banked to be redeemed at the end of your program.
  • Your earned credits won’t expire, as long as you remain enrolled.*

*Students who do not take classes for two or more consecutive quarters will lose any accumulated tuition-free classes . However, the student may restart the program upon re-admission with zero accumulated tuition-free classes.


Graduation Fund helps dreams come true

Before going back to school, Michael Smith was unfulfilled in his career. He wanted a position that matched his passion, but he was worried about financing his education and providing for his family.

That’s where the Strayer Graduation Fund came in. By rewarding our bachelor’s degree students with classes on us in their last year, the Strayer Graduation Fund helps lower the cost for students like Michael. With the Graduation Fund students do not have to choose between school or family. This is our way of demonstrating that we’re as committed to your success as you are.


We want to support your success academically and financially. That’s why many of our scholarships can be combined to help make your tuition even more affordable.
