How Long Does it Take to Earn a Master's Degree Online?

In many cases, students can typically expect to earn their master's degree within 1.5 to 2 years. But the beauty of earning your degree online at Southern New Hampshire University is the ability to go at your own pace - whether that's over the course of a few years or in as few as 15 months.

At Southern New Hampshire University, we understand that no two learners are the same. Some students balance full time jobs with their studies while others need to catch up on coursework after the kids go to bed. No matter what your schedule looks like, our advisors will work with you every step of the way to help you find what works for you. And if anything changes, they can help you adjust accordingly.

How Much Does an Online Master's Degree Cost?

While earning your master's degree online is often more affordable than pursuing a program on a traditional university campus, the cost will ultimately depend on the school and program you choose.

At Southern New Hampshire University, we're committed to making higher education accessible, by making it more affordable. That's why we offer some of the lowest online tuition rates in the nation.

At just $637 per credit hour, a 36-credit master’s degree is only $22,932. Most of SNHU’s graduate degrees are 36 credits, though a few programs may require one or more foundation courses. Some specialized programs may also require more than the standard 12 courses.

There are ways to save on your graduate degree. For example, we accept up to 12 transfer credits, which could help you save over $7,000 in tuition. Our Student Financial Services team is always here to assist you with a customized plan that works for you. These counselors have one goal: to make your education as affordable as possible. When you better understand ways to invest in your education, you set yourself up for a stronger financial future.

As you think about that future, you’ll also want to keep in mind the return on investment (ROI) you’ll get from earning your online master’s degree more affordably at SNHU. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, master’s degree holders earn almost 16% more in median weekly earnings than those with a bachelor’s degree.1

Note: Additional fees for books or other materials may apply each term, as well.
