ProgramCost per CreditEstimated Tuition
Master of Science in Education (30 credits)

Admitted students will be required to submit a $250 nonrefundable deposit to reserve a place in the program. Enrollment deposits will be applied as a credit toward the first term’s tuition once the student enrolls in the program.

Please note the cost of tuition does not include out-of-pocket expenses such as books, additional course materials, immersions, or other fees. While immersion fees include a majority of associated expenses, students are still responsible for travel costs, as well as some food and miscellaneous charges throughout the immersion experience. 

Tuition and fees are subject to change. A moderate tuition increase should be expected each year.
