Program tuition is competitively priced at $375 per unit, which breaks down as follows:
Summer Institute: $1875, plus either:
- Full-time: $3750 per semester for 3 semesters, or
- Part-time: $1500-$2200 per semester for 6 semesters
Students will also be responsible for typical program-related costs such as books, travel + housing for the Summer Institute, research-related costs, and computing/internet needs.
If desired, students may apply to HSU Housing + Dining services to explore on and off-campus housing options during the Summer Institute and any other time that they decide to reside on campus.
Students are encouraged to contact the HSU Financial Aid office for information about available grants, loans, scholarships and work study. Please note that the MA program begins in the summer of each year rather than the fall. Financial aid for summer is tied to the preceding academic year; for example, Summer 2014 is part of the Fall 2013-Spring 2014 academic year. To obtain financial aid for the program beginning Summer 2014, students will need to fill out BOTH the 2013–2014 FAFSA and the 2014–2015 FAFSA prior to the beginning of the program (see the FAFSA website for application details and deadlines)
Students will also receive support and guidance for seeking external funding for research as an integral part of the program.
