    How much it cost to earn the Bahavioral Analysis Cerfication

  • The certification program is $725 per credit hour. The entire program is 18 credits, which will be about $13,050. However, for those students who do not already possess a Master’s degree in a field that the Board deems related, we also have a Master’s track program, which is only 4 additional classes (10 total). The total cost of that program is $21,750. Please feel free to contact an Enrollment Advisor, and we’ll be happy to assist you in every way we can. We can be reached at 877-398-3059.
