- How big are online classes?
Our online classes are smaller than on-ground classes, and typically have 12-15 students.
- How do online classes work?
After you enroll, and are accepted to your online program, you sign-up, or "register" for your first courses. Like all Baker Online students, you will begin your online experience with a three-week online class designed to orient you to the Baker Online classroom, and review the expectations and requirements of Baker Online students. When you have completed this course successfully, you can move on to additional online courses.

Tuition and fees: $13,500

- I have employer tuition assistance. How does this work?
If your employer issues a voucher, letter of credit, or tuition assistance form for tuition, you must turn this documentation into the Business Office upon receipt. Please verify that all information regarding start date(s), course name(s) and number(s) is correct. The College will invoice your employer using this document, after second session classes begin. Payment is sent directly to the College. Any unpaid balance is the responsibility of the student and must be paid in full by the first day of class. It is the student’s responsibility to obtain the voucher. The College will not invoice your employer unless you have turned in the voucher.
Admissions at Baker wanted to make sure I was getting the most for my money.
