Tuition and Costs

We recognize that cost is essential when determining which program is best for you. Tuition, segregated fees, and a distance education fee combine to determine the program’s total cost, and each item is priced on a per-credit basis. There is an additional $25 administrative fee per semester of enrollment. For questions about tuition or more information, please reach out to Student Financial Services. Students enrolled in an add-on licensure program are considered non-degree seeking and will not be eligible for financial aid. If students combine their Add-on licensure with the master’s in education degree, they are degree-seeking and are eligible for financial aid.
