WU sets up electronic payments through the Squareup platform. You have the option of paying by credit card as a recurring payment, automatic transfer through your bank, or by check. Typically, the students make monthly payments on the 7th of each month. However, you also have the option of splitting up the tuition into two annual payments. You will receive an invoice by email each month from Squareup.
Tuition varies according to each program. Please see the details of the specific program you are interested in to find out how much tuition is for that program. wagner.university/tuition
Our payment plans for tuition typically include spreading the payments over the course of the program. For example, students completing a Masters program would have the option to make monthly payments over a 24 month period of time versus paying the full tuition up front.
All WU students on a tuition payment plan, will be auto invoiced for monthly tuition payment that is due and payable on the 7th of each month. Wagner Tuition auto invoices will be sent to your email address via our PayPal or our SquareUp student tuition processing system. In the event your invoice becomes past due, an additional 5% will be incurred for each invoice that hasn’t been paid. If past due payments accumulate for more than 3 months, you will be withdrawn from your WU program.
Tuition does not include the cost of textbooks, personal resources such as computers, travel, or accommodations for Residential Training.

While Colorado and California recognize Wagner as a religious institution authorized to issue diplomas, it is not accredited.
No. A Wagner degree will not grant you admission to Shiloh University if you are otherwise ineligible to attend.
You will be on a track. Wagner delivers instruction using a cohort model. A cohort is a group of students who take assignments during the same time period. Thus, assignments cannot be self-paced.
Each Wagner program consists of core courses and a final project (depending on the program the final project may be a research paper, a mission trip with a reflection paper, or, for our doctoral students, a dissertation). Each core course is typically eight weeks. There is a one week break between each of these core courses. Because Wagner utilizes a cohort model, students take these courses as a group and they take the one-week breaks as a group.
No. Because Wagner utilizes a cohort model, students take breaks based on the schedule of the program in which they are enrolled.
The average amount of time a student spends on assignments each week averages between 10-12 hours. Students in the doctorate program can expect to spend more time on average.
In a typical week, students are assigned book chapters to read and/or videos to watch. They are asked to respond to questions based on those assignments. They post their responses in a discussion forum by Thursday of that week so that the members of their cohort can read them. By Sunday of that week, each student must post a reply in the discussion forum to three of their colleagues’ posts. Activation exercises, research assignments, group projects and hands on work (called practicums) may also be assigned during the week or over the course of the program. In addition, students will complete a mid-term paper and a final paper.
The programs are primarily online. Twice a year students will receive live instruction during a residential training session.
Residential training is a two to two and a half day event in which students enjoy live instruction in various formats, receive activation, and share meals and other fellowship activities with the members of their cohort and other Wagner students.
Some of the Residential Training sessions are taped. Students who live abroad and are unable to attend a session in person may view the video.
Please see the specific program you are interested in to get the specific details regarding your graduation requirements. Generally speaking, all schoolwork, e.g., core courses and a final project, must be completed and all tuition and fees must be paid.
