  • Total program cost, including tuition and fees: $26,300.
  • Cost per credit hour: $650.
  • The approximate out-of-pocket cost for tuition per semester is $2,750 (factoring in the $7,500 assistantship). The approximate total for tuition for two years is $11,000 (including funds from the assistantship).
  • Students who choose to participate in the optional international trip will pay an additional trip fee (currently $4,250) during the 2nd year of the program.

Every full-time student in the program will receive an assistantship assignment for each semester they are enrolled. Stipends for assistantships vary from a minimum of $7,500–$9,000 per year to help with tuition and fees costs. In addition to the $7,500 stipend, residence life graduate assistants also receive housing and seven meals per week.
