Apply for admission to SFA

To enroll in any course at SFA, you must first be admitted to the university. Learn more about the admissions process. You'll also want to review the requirements of your chosen online program for any additional admission requirements specific to that program.

Cost and aid

An education is an investment in your future. We know that cost is a significant consideration for all prospective students, which is why we work so hard to make an SFA education affordable to all.

Information about tuition and fees is available on the Cost of Attendance page, including resources to estimate your cost per semester.

Some of our programs, like the RN-BSN track, offer tuition packages, while others can be paid for through special funding opportunities, like TEACH Grants.

Even though SFA Online courses are affordably priced, financial aid can help to cover expenses. As an SFA student, you are eligible to apply for federal and state financial aid and institutional scholarships. The information and forms page contains all you'll need to apply for financial aid.
