Students fully accepted into the Graduate Certificate program are eligible for the university’s Professional Programs Rate – which is approximately 40% less than the regular graduate tuition.

Translated into dollar amounts, this means that beginning in the summer of 2016, courses cost $1,035 per credit hour (as opposed to $1,710). This rate is comparable to or better than most out-of-state graduate tuition costs.

The Graduate Certificate program is not eligible for university-sponsored financial aid, but students may be able to apply to outside sources for aid.
