Graduate Cost & Aid

As a graduate student, you will most likely assume greater financial responsibility for your degree than you may have for your undergraduate degree. Several financial aid options are available to help you finance your education, so you can breathe easy and focus on what’s most important—earning your degree.

Graduate students must be admitted to a graduate degree program to be considered for graduate-level funding. Awards are based on full-time enrollment in graduate-level courses (not undergraduate). Full time for graduate students is 8 credits; half time is 6 credits.

Depending on the courses taken, you may also be assessed differential tuition or a personal property or service charge.

All graduate courses:

  • These figures reflect current graduate rates. Your actual cost may vary depending on books, personal expenses and official degree requirements.
  • In-state and out-state tuition rates are the same.

On campus graduate courses:

  • Per credit fees for 1-12 credits are $55.49.
  • Per credit fees for 13+ credits are $0.61.

Online graduate courses:

  • Per credit fees for 1+ credits are $55.61.
