Tuition, Fees, and Expenses - Fall 2018 / Spring 2019


Specific pricing may apply based on the following:

Part-Time Enrollment1 refers to enrollment of less than 9 credits during a semester. Students seeking part-time enrollment must obtain approval from the Office of Graduate and Post-Doctoral Studies. Part-time enrollment tuition is calculated on the per-credit rate. Students are also assessed a one-time per semester part-time enrollment fee. Students not approved for part-time enrollment will be assessed the full-time enrollment tuition charge.

Reduced Tuition2 - After 10 semesters of full-time study in one doctoral degree program (excluding the summer semesters), continuing students may be eligible for a reduced tuition rate. A semester of full-time study is defined as a fall or spring semester in which at least 9 hours of credit are earned. Students in the Shepherd School of Music and the School of Architecture are eligible for reduced rate tuition after six semesters of full-time study.

Humanities Graduate Student Assn Fee3 - Assessed to students enrolled in School of Humanities degree programs.
