To estimate the cost of completing your graduate degree or certificate, start with the program that interests you. The Graduate College charges tuition on a per-credit basis with different rates for each graduate program.

Planning ahead? Be aware that new tuition and fee rates go into effect each summer term.

The Financial Aid Office calculates financial aid awards for each student based on her or his unique financial and academic circumstances. We use a matrix of program costs based on per credit tuition, average living expenses and expected enrollment for each type of academic program to construct an estimated cost of attendance.

Rates may change for every academic year. Please visit the Student Accounts webpage for current Tuition and Fees.
