Tuition and Financial Aid

Education is an investment in your future.

The majority of college students, especially at the graduate level, need to seek financial aid to cover the cost of their tuition and related expenses. The federal government as well as private financial institutions offer loans to cover a lot, if not all, of the cost of your education that you can gradually pay back after you graduate.

Think of your education as an investment in your own future: The money you commit to spending now will increase your earning potential in the future. Quite simply, you can be sure that it is money well spent.

Tuition and fees are subject to change. For the most updated information, please visit the School of Education’s Tuition and Financial Aid webpage. Many of the students in the School of Education fund their schooling through the use of federal Stafford Loans. To obtain more information on the Stafford Loan, including details on loan limits, please visit
