Cost Calculation Details
Every student is unique in the number of courses they will take, what financial aid they can access, and tuition per course typically changes from year to year. However, as a starting point, if you were to complete a master’s degree at the School of Business and Nonprofit Management and pay the full cost beginning in the 2014–2015 academic year, your total cost could estimated as follows:
- Master’s degrees require 18 courses.
- At this year’s tuition rate ($2,196 per course), 18 courses would cost $39,528.
- Most students complete their degrees in two-and-a-half years. Adjusting for slight per-course cost increases, a tuition cost range could be $39,528 to $41,000.
However, many SBNM students qualify for tuition grant and scholarship opportunities that reduce their overall tuition bill by up to 35% — a savings of as much as $14,000 off the total program cost.
