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.
Per-course tuition for a three-credit graduate-level course in the Whiting School of Engineering is $6,290, but with support from the dean of the Whiting School of Engineering, our students enjoy a substantially decreased out-of-pocket cost. The typical tuition rates for Engineering for Professionals courses during the 2023–2024 academic year, after the Dean’s support is applied, are $1,375 for undergraduate (200-level) and $5,090 for graduate (600-level and higher) courses. The Dean’s support is only available for courses offered through the Engineering for Professionals program.
