Graduate Tuition & Fees

Graduate tuition is determined per credit, residency status and location. Although many opt for off-campus housing, graduate students can choose to live in University residence halls and purchase a meal plan. See undergraduate estimated costs for on-campus room and board estimates.

Please note that the Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership, Master of Science in Nursing and the Master of Medical Science in Physician Assistant Studies (beginning Summer 2019) have different tuition and fee schedules.  Please refer to the MSN and MMSPA and PA Program Tuition and Fees schedule using the links to the left for a view of the tuition and fees by program.
