RN-BSN Online Option Tuition, Expenses & Scholarships

Chamberlain provides you with individualized support throughout your educational journey beginning with the admissions process. Your admission representative will make sure you have a full understanding of the program, request all transcripts on your behalf, and make sure you understand what it is like to go to class in the online environment. 

Part of going back to school involves making sure you understand all of your payment and finance options. Chamberlain works with you to make sure you know exactly what your education will cost and the finance and payment options available to you. We will check to see if you qualify for a group-specific tuition rate because of your association with one of our healthcare partners or see if you may qualify for a scholarship.
