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.

  • Fall 2018, Spring 2019 & Summer 2019

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

    All graduate courses:

    • Per credit fees for 1-12 credits are $43.96.
    • Per credit fees for 13+ credits are $0.47.
    • These figures reflect current graduate rates. Your actual cost may vary depending on books, personal expenses and official degree requirements.
    • Non-resident and non-reciprocity tuition may be higher.
        

    Online and distance graduate courses have an additional $55.00 per credit differential tuition rate.
