Undergraduate Versus Graduate Tuition Rates

Forty-five credits are required for the completion of a Master's degree. Students are allowed to apply a maximum of nine graduate credits taken as an undergraduate to both their undergraduate and master’s degrees. Undergraduate students continue to pay undergraduate tuition for 500-level courses until their undergraduate requirements are met.  The remaining thirty-six credits (one year of fulltime study) will be charged at a graduate tuition rate.

Students enrolled in an AMP will be eligible for financial aid (Pell Grant) until they complete their undergraduate degree. Once the undergraduate degree requirements are met, the student may be supported on a graduate teaching or research assistantship, or the student will pay graduate tuition and fees.
