You’d be hard-pressed to find many U.S. colleges or universities that offer as many online doctoral degree programs as Kentucky’s University of the Cumberlands.

Total credit hour and additional degree requirements vary by program, as do tuition rates.

Its low per-credit tuition rate and total of only 30 credit hours of required coursework for EdS degree holders makes the hybrid-formatted Doctor of Educational Leadership from Southwest Baptist University among the best deals for those wanting an affordable online EdD.

Students with Educational Administration MS degrees and building-level certifications, for example, complete a three-year, 51 credit program while students entering with a non-administration education master’s complete a 73-credit curriculum over four years. Some coursework is delivered online through a combination of synchronous lecture sessions and asynchronous assignments. Most coursework, however, is completed on SBU’s main campus in Bolivar, Missouri.

Rankings Methodology

PhD.me’s rankings are based on data provided by The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). To be eligible for our most affordable rankings, colleges were required to have the following characteristics:

  • Annual graduate tuition under $15,000.
  • At least one doctoral program offered partially online or fully online.
  • Accreditation from an organization recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

Eligible colleges were then ranked based on their performance in the following metrics:

  • Cost: Relative cost of attendance compared to peer schools on the list. Based on tuition and fees per academic year. (Heaviest weighting)
  • Institutional Aid: Percentage of students who receive financial aid from the school itself. (Second-heaviest weighting)
  • Online Program Availability: Number of fully-online or partially-online doctoral programs reported.
  • Academic Counseling: Existence of this service on campus or online.
  • Career Placement: Existence of this service on campus or online.

What Makes an Online Doctoral Program Affordable?

Several factors affect the overall affordability of online doctoral programs. Four of the biggest to consider are discussed below. Keep in mind, though, that there are exceptions, so never discount any program before you look at it in detail.  

In-State vs. Out-of-State Residency

Since public colleges and universities receive a lot of their funding from state taxes, they normally charge a substantially higher tuition rate to out-of-state students. This is a good reason to check programs at schools in your state of residence first. However, some schools now charge a single rate to all students in online degree programs regardless of residency, so your out-of-state status may not be an eliminating factor. 

Private vs. Public Universities

The general rule is that degrees from public colleges and universities are more expensive than their public school counterparts. For the most part, that rule still stands. However, our program rankings show this may be changing. Don’t automatically exclude doctorate programs simply because they’re from private schools.

Credits Required

Be sure to consider the total number of credits required. For example, EdD programs at Evangel University and Southwest Baptist University are $600 and $445 per credit respectively. However, the total required credits are 50 for Evangel’s program and 73 for Southwest Baptist’s program. So, the total tuition cost for Evangel ($30,000) is less than that for Southwest Baptist ($32,485). Both programs are still quite affordable, but the total cost may be a deciding factor.

Financial Aid Packages Offered by the School

Most students need some outside help to fund their doctorate studies. Fortunately, students enrolled in virtually all of the programs mentioned in this guide are eligible for federal financial aid, particularly student loans. Most schools also offer a range of other aid opportunities, like scholarships and grants, work-study programs, and in-house student loans. Fort Hays State University, for example, offers both nursing-exclusive scholarships and a loan forgiveness program to its DNP students.  

Where to Get Funding for Your Online PhD or Professional Doctorate 

Paying for an online doctorate can feel daunting, but there are many ways to lower your out-of-pocket costs and make earning your degree a reality. Several of the most common funding opportunities are detailed below but be sure to investigate Financial Aid for Doctoral Students in more depth before beginning your program. 

Scholarships & Grants

Scholarships and grants are popular mainly because you don’t pay them back. They’re available from a range of sources, sometimes even the colleges and universities themselves. Check each school’s website for available scholarships and grants along with the Scholarships & Grants for Doctoral Students available regardless of where you attend.  

Doctoral Fellowships

Doctoral fellowships are merit-based awards that provide financial support to doctorate students to help pay for their continued studies. As opposed to assistantships, fellowships usually do not require students to take on teaching or research responsibilities in exchange for the award. Learn more about how to land a great doctoral fellowship in this PhD Student’s Guide to Fellowships.   

Employer Tuition Reimbursement

Companies value good employees and often want to support their efforts for career advancement, especially when its advancement in their own organizations. That’s why many companies sponsor employer tuition reimbursement programs for their most valued employees and pay for some or all the tuition costs in return for a commitment to employment with the company for a stated period. Speak with your supervisor or HR office to see if tuition reimbursement is available for you.  

Student Loans

The student loan is the most common type of financial aid for all degree programs. The biggest source of student loans is the federal government. For grad students, that usually means the Direct PLUS Loan. Some schools offer in-house loans for their students as well. Contact your school’s financial aid office for information on student loan availability.
