Tuition and Fees, Academic Year 2013-14

Graduate tuition and fees correlate to the course and/or program curriculum being pursued. In most cases, students matriculated in graduate degree programs will pay Standard rates. In some instances, students will instead pay University Extension rates or Online rates.

The New England Regional Student Program, in which UMass Dartmouth participates, offers reduced rates to out-of-state residents in certain programs only.

Note that nine (9) credits per semester constitutes a full-time load for graduate students. For law students, twelve (12) credits per semester constitutes a full-time load.

Charges are subject to change, and may do so before this site is updated.
