HCC Online's total 2021 tuition $10,000 for 15 credits in graduate health care compliance education.  This is less than the cost of comparable, 15 credit CCB accredited programs from any other university.

You may apply for private educational loans for non-degree seeking students. Information regarding private educational loans can be found here. Federal student loans are not available to students who are enrolled in a non-degree certificate program.

Students should be aware that their loan servicer will automatically defer their outstanding federal loans when students are enrolled for at least 6 credits.  The HCC program typically runs 6 credits in the spring semester, 6 credits in the summer semester, and 3 credits in the fall semester.  If you take the program courses in this order, your loans would be deferred in the spring and summer semesters.  Students should contact their loan servicer if they do not want to defer their loans while enrolled or if deferment was not automatically granted.


Each course was developed specifically for an online environment. Courses are tailored to meet the needs of working professionals who enroll in this program while maintaining their full-time professional pursuits.  All of our courses are asynchronous, meaning there are no scheduled class meeting times or locations.

You will complete most courses in just eight weeks, completing weekly assignments based on your own schedule and from any location.
