Benefits for Columbus State Graduates
- Franklin University Tuition Guarantee. The guarantee enables new students to lock-in their tuition rates from the first-term to graduation. Keep in mind, this is our new, discounted rate! The guarantee applies to associate degree students seeking bachelor’s degrees, as well as for faculty and staff seeking bachelors or master’s degrees. In addition to maximizing transfer credit (up to 94 hours), the tuition guarantee further lowers the out-of-pocket cost of a bachelor’s degree for transfer students – many of whom have already been drawing against financial aid maximums. For faculty and staff who pursue bachelor’s or master’s degrees through Franklin, the 15% discount, in combination with the fixed tuition rate, provides up-front insight on total educational costs.
- Maximize your Columbus State credits by choosing Franklin's 3+1 or EXACTTrack, a joint business program with Columbus State and cutting the cost of your bachelor's degree in half.
- Students only need to complete 30 semesters hours at Franklin to receive their bachelor's degree, enabling them to take more course work at Columbus State.
