BSN General Education Requirements


Students in UJ’s online BSN program pay $330 per credit hour in tuition (or $297 if they work for a UJ Business Partner). Students also pay $550 for their clinical fees, a $30 technology fee each semester, and $150 fee upon graduation to cover the costs of their diplomas, regalia, and the celebration, but will pay no other fees at UJ.

Before you ever enroll at UJ, your admissions counselor and our Program Director will complete a transcript evaluation and plan of study and let you know what your degree will cost.

Take it to the next level!

In addition to earning your BSN degree, students in UJ’s online program are eligible to complete a certificate in Psychology for Health Care Professionals.
