Most of our graduate programs require completion of 30 credit hours which equates to 10 courses, so they can be completed in three semesters.  Other programs require completion of more coursework.

While some graduate programs have set application deadlines, most accept applications are accepted on a rolling basis meaning you can apply at any time.  

Most graduate programs award scholarships based on merit, and many also award assistantships. All international students are considered for merit-based scholarships and assistantships (if offered).  Scholarship decisions are made on a first-come, first-served basis, so for rolling deadlines the earlier you apply the better your chances for a scholarship.

International students pay the same tuition and fees as do students from the United States. Graduate tuition and fees are calculated based on a credit-hour basis as many programs consider 9 credits (3 courses) full-time and others 12 credits (4 courses)

For nine credits/semester, graduate tuition is currently set at $35,640 with no required fees. For 12 or more credits, tuition and fees are currently set at $47,522 and $646.

The graduate study application and instructions can be found at this web page.
