Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) is making a bold move for Fall 2021. In the face of rising college costs around the nation, the university is lowering tuition for its distance education and graduate studies students by up to 25 percent!
For SAGU’s distance education degree programs, the cost per credit hour will be reduced from $499 per credit hour to $399 per credit hour. This is a savings of over 20%, making SAGU’s online degrees even more affordable. Graduate students can also save up to 25% on qualifying degree plans.

“We are excited for the impact this initiative will have on the next generation. Our institution continually strives to reduce expenses for all of our students, no matter where they are in their education journey.”–Dr. Kermit Bridges, President of Southwestern Assemblies of God University
Joshua Martin, SAGU’s Assistant Dean of Admissions, believes that the online tuition reduction is a reflection of the university’s commitment to making a Christian higher education more affordable and accessible. “One hundred dollars less per credit hour will save our students upwards of $12,000 over an entire degree,” said Martin. “An investment into earning a college degree is still the most valuable investment you can make, paying you back many times over. This price reduction makes it that much better.”
Beyond the reduced tuition, the university provides numerous opportunities for scholarships, discounts, and financial aid, including:
- On Campus Ministry Majors receive from 50-100% off tuition including all federal, state, and SAGU scholarships and grants.
- Minister’s children who are enrolled full time and live on campus will receive grants and scholarships equal to at least 50% of tuition.
- Missionary’s children that enroll full time and live on campus will receive grants and scholarships equal to at least 60% of tuition (This includes a combination of federal, state, and institutional financial aid)

“As we look to the future, we believe this reduction makes it possible for many to return for their education. Whether it’s to complete a college degree, or to go on to higher credentials with a graduate program tailored to your career needs, now is the time to take advantage of this new pricing and complete what you’ve dreamed of doing for so long.”–Dr. Paul Brooks. Vice President for Academics.
