Continue Your Education

We're pleased to offer our alumni the following opportunities.

Annual Single Course Discount

Alumni may take one course per year at the current tuition rate for the highest program completed as a SANS.edu student. Alumni are eligible for this discount one year after completing their program.

Example: If an alum earned both a certificate and master’s degree as a student, the alum would receive the current tuition rate for the master’s program.

Tuition includes the SANS training and GIAC exam. No academic credit will be awarded for the course.
