Graduate and non-degree students are charged tuition on a per credit basis. For the 2017-18 academic year, tuition is $1,642 per credit (a two-year master's program ranges from 30-39 credits).
Merit Awards are made by the Dean of the College
based on the recommendations of the academic departments. These awards
are granted to students who demonstrate outstanding
academic merit. Funding is extremely competitive, and
only a small number of exceptional students receive them. The priority admission date for Merit Awards is Feb. 1.
All students must be able to demonstrate financial ability to pay for their academic and living expenses prior to enrollment. International students do not need to submit additional materials in order to be considered for merit-based aid.
