Tuition and Financial Aid

We understand that starting or returning to school is a huge commitment. The American Women’s College of Bay Path University was founded with the idea of making higher education more accessible to women. That’s why we work with each and every learner to ensure our programs are financially accessible.

Our financial aid offerings and one-on-one support ensure every learner who wants to pursue an education can do so affordably.

These benefits extend to your spouse as well.

Four Ways an Online Degree Benefits You and Your Employer

When your employer provides tuition assistance, they add a highly valued work benefit to their company. Don’t hesitate to ask your manager or HR team about this, even if there’s no formal program in place. The 2022 Cengage report found that 57% of employers who do not currently offer an education benefit to employees are considering employer-paid education and online education opportunities.

Employers absolutely benefit from your education. By helping you to advance your learning, they:

You’ll learn leadership skills that make you the person others gravitate toward following and turn to for guidance. These skills can help to offload the responsibilities of those in charge and position you for advancement.

Employers who provide a strong career path for their employees will see them stay longer. When the time comes, you’ll be ready to advance to senior roles, and your company will spend less time and money filling open positions.

You can apply many of the new skills and strategies you learn immediately to enhance your role and the workplace. By investing in your education, employers benefit from your knowledge of current best practices and technologies.

TAWC’s flexible online programs allow you to manage your time so you can succeed in the classroom and workplace simultaneously. You won’t need to leave work early, pass on special projects, or insist on a special schedule.
