Estimated Graduate Expenses for 2020-2021

Tuition, as the largest share of the cost for attending graduate school, will depend on your residency and your program of study. To determine your tuition rate, consult the tables on the Student Billing web page. If your program of study does not appear on the list of Graduate Programs with Special Tuition Rates, you can reference the standard Graduate Program tuition rates by residency.
