2020–21 Graduate Tuition and Fees

You must pay tuition or set up a payment plan by the first day of each semester, even if that is not your first day of class.

Graduate students are charged a $13 fee per credit hour during fall and spring semesters. The fee is broken down to a $4 student activity fee, $1 student publication fee, and $8 technology fee.

Your cost of attendance will vary based upon which program you are enrolled in. Graduate cost of attendance is based on 12 months and taking at least 4 credit hours per semester as a student living off campus. The breakdown includes costs paid directly to Westminster as well as estimates of other expenses you may incur (room and board, transportation, personal expenses, and the Stafford Loan Fee) that vary and are not paid to Westminster.

Graduate tuition and fees are dependent upon which program you are in and how many credit hours you are taking. See the current per credit hour cost for the program you are interested in enrolling in to determine the total cost of your tuition and fees for the number of credit hours you plan to take. International students are required to take 7 credits per semester to maintain full-time status for student visa requirements.

To determine your estimated total cost of attendance, add your total cost for tuition and fees to the estimated costs for room and board, transportation, and personal expenses.

If you are an international student and need help calculating your cost of attendance, email the International Admissions Office (international@westminstercollege.edu).
