Tuition at Thales College

Tuition at Thales College is $4,000 per 15-week term. Our B.A. of Entrepreneurial Business and B.A. of Classical Education & Leadership require 8 terms, and our B.S. of Mechanical Engineering requires 10 terms due to additional lab and theory courses. Either degree option also includes a second degree, a B.A. of Liberal Arts and Sciences, at no extra charge.

Students earn two bachelor's degrees at Thales College for less than the cost of a single year at a typical private college. We operate on a year-round calendar, allowing students to complete their degrees in roughly three years. Our students will be working, earning, and contributing to their communities well before their peers at traditional colleges and universities graduate.

All students are encouraged to participate in paid internships, to develop professional skills and contribute to their college tuition.

We are committed to ensuring students can pay tuition with the income earned from internships or part-time employment throughout their time in college.

At Thales College, we believe a college education should be within reach for every student. Our commitment to affordability allows students to focus on achieving their dreams.
