Please note that rates are subject to change each academic year. Students may face an increase or decrease in the tuition rate each year that they are enrolled in their degree program. You can find more information about additional fees, online program costs, and the previous year's rates on the Student Accounts website below.

Approximate tuition costs for full-time graduate students:

Graduate students who are enrolled in an on-campus program and studying full-time must be enrolled in a minimum of 9 credit hours for the fall and spring semesters. The estimated total cost of tuition for a full time graduate student registered for 9 credit hours for the Fall 2024 and/or Spring 2025 semesters is $19,1970 per semester.

Approximate tuition costs for part-time graduate students:

Graduate students who are enrolled as part-time students are registered for less than 9 credit hours per semester. The total estimated tuition costs per semester are based on the total credit hours a part time student is registered for.

Please note, students who are studying on an F-1 visa are not eligible to enroll as part-time students unless they have been approved to take a Reduced Course Load. F-1 visa holders are only eligible to be approved for a Reduced Course Load during their final semester in the program if they have less fewer than 9 credit hours remaining in order to fulfill their degree requirements.
