Tuition and Cost of Attendance for 2013-2014
The Mandel School makes the difficult decision about where to earn a master’s degree just a little bit easier by offering generous financial aid. In 2012, students in our School’s master’s program received over $4.5 million in scholarships and stipends. For the 2013-2014 academic year, our tuition is $38,560. (The University releases new tuition rates normally in March each year.) However, on average, with the scholarships and stipends that our students receive, the tuition costs for in-state and out-of-state students is reduced. Our tuition cost, as compared to regional public universities, is thus very competitive (See attachments below). Our scholarships are generously supported by alumni and friends. We work closely with you on a one-to-one basis to make sure that those who want to receive an education at one of the top-ranked schools of social work can afford to do so.
(12-16 credit hours) – $38,560 ($19,280/per semester)
Intensive Weekend and Part-Time Programs
(1-11 credit hours) – $1,288/per credit hour ($3,864/per 3 credit hours)
University Policy requires students to pay at least one-half of their tuition at the time of registration. If you are not receiving financial aid or your financial aid has not been awarded, please be prepared to pay at least one-half of your tuition by the first day of classes. We accept checks, money orders, and Discover Credit Card. There is also a tuition payment plan available but it needs to be set up by August 3, 2013: Controller’s Office
