Dual Degree Tuition

  • Program Fees: New students who are fully admitted to any graduate degree program are charged a one-time $175 program fee to be paid with the first term’s tuition. The fee covers binding of the capstone and graduation expenses.

  • Textbooks and Course Materials: The cost of textbooks and course materials is handled in a variety of ways. Some courses may require additional materials such as course packets and CDs. Minneapolis Center courses may provide books for the students. These charges may be added to the student's account. Please contact the program for more specific information. When course materials are required, the corresponding cost covers the photocopying as well as the cost of procuring copyright permission from the publisher(s).

  • Other Fees: Occasionally, a fee to cover special materials, supplies, or food will be added to the cost of the course.
