Costs and Financial Aid
The MHCID graduate program is a self-sustaining, fee-based program. Instructional fees are charged on a per-credit basis, and they are the same for resident (state of Washington) and non-resident students. In addition to instructional fees, students pay other required fees each quarter, including registration and technology fees. Fees are payable at the beginning of each quarter.
Cost per credit: $995 (for 2016-17; actual cost for 2017-18 is pending approval)
Minimum number of credits required: 46 credits (historically, the average number of credits taken is 48)
Estimated average cost of degree in 2017-18*: $48,715
*This estimate is based on 48 credits with a 2% cost increase. It does not factor in additional credits beyond the average taken, other required fees, textbooks or any additional annual fee increases. More information about costs and UW fees can be found here
A portion of the course fees will be used to defray the cost of receptions, food and non-alcoholic beverages served at program events and activities, and graduation mementoes.
Some textbooks and discounted software are provided.
