Tuition is calculated per course. Graduate degrees typically require completing ten (10) courses and certifications typically require completing five (5) courses (some certificates require 4 courses).

Review the program requirements for your program of interest to confirm how many courses are required to complete your selected degree or certificate program.

Students whose tuition is paid by their employer are strongly recommended to begin processing requests with their employers well before registration deadlines to ensure payment is processed and complete. If payment is not processed, students will not be able to register for courses. Students are ultimately responsible for all costs associated with their registration.

Please review the academic calendar for registration and tuition payment deadlines for upcoming academic terms. Please contact SEAM with any questions about tuition, payments, or financial holds.

How to Find Out Whether Your Company Will Pay for Your Master’s

Engineers and technical professionals pursue advanced degrees for a variety of reasons. Whether in pursuit of a pay increase, competitive boost or advantage, job security and/or career advancement, ambitious employees are driven to elevate their technological know-how.

I appreciated the content and how it was tailored to my work. It made it so much easier to translate the stuff I learned through the program to my career and make an immediate impact. It was also very convenient that the course schedule worked easily with my work schedule. The program also was great because it was project based which appeals to my learning style.
