Graduate Tuition and Fees

Education is an investment in your future. It should be easy to know the cost of that investment, so we’ve simplified tuition and fees for graduate students. 
 

ITEM    COST
Tuition $530 per credit hour
Technology Fee $200 per semester
Flat-rate Textbook Rental Fee $30 per credit hour (subject to change)


The fees above apply to the 2024–25 academic year for all graduate students regardless of modality.
Students should refer to Montibus to view their individual charges and account balance. 

Estimate of Total Costs

Financial Aid is calculated by considering all the expenses a student will have including tuition, fees, housing, food, travel to campus, and personal necessities. All these expenses totaled equal the student's "cost of attendance" budget, which determines the maximum amount of aid a student may receive.

"Direct Costs" are items billed by the college directly, including tuition, housing, food, and fees (for residential students). Non-billable items include budget items like travel and miscellaneous expenses.
