Create Without Ceasing

Dedicated to providing
a way forward

Moving forward with your educational goals is an investment in yourself and in your future. We’re committed to being transparent about the cost of higher education and in helping make that investment affordable.

Cost Breakdown

When it comes to determining tuition costs, we believe transparency empowers you to make the right decisions to plan for financial success. Our direct-cost structure lets you know the cost of your tuition, educational resources and other fees so you know what to expect in navigating your investment in yourself. And unlike a traditional semester-based program, you’ll have the option to pay for one course at a time instead of paying for several courses at once.

Ways to finance your investment.

For over 10 years, I’ve always taken time to help, encourage and be a support for others. But I was never able to treat myself with the same demeanor and respect. I wanted to finally invest in myself and have the opportunity to enhance the ability of helping, encouraging and supporting others.
