Tuition and Financial Aid

One of the first questions you may have about earning a graduate-level degree is, Can I afford it? We're here to make sure that we do everything possible to make your plans a reality. Financial aid and even scholarships and assistantships to some programs are available to students. We're proud of the fact that we've been listed as a top school for return on investment and that our student debt at graduation is below average. A lot of the work to get that result starts right here!
