Graduate Student Resources

The Graduate Offices in the College of Arts and Sciences and in the School of Business Administration serve as a central location for support and guidance for graduate students. Whether you are just beginning your educational journey or about to walk across the stage, we make the process easy for you. By providing you with important information, we hope to enrich your graduate school experience outside of the classroom.

We understand paying for your graduate degree takes time and planning. We aim to provide you with the information needed to make those informed decisions.

Tuition is set each year; the most current rates are published by Student Financial Aid.

Important Payment Deadlines: Financial arrangements for the satisfaction of student account balances must be completed prior to the first day of classes.

  • Spring: December 15th
  • Summer: May 15th
  • Fall: July 15th

Interested in a payment plan or to make an individual payment in full? Use the helpful tools below. 

Your Graduate Office is always a great place to start when you have questions. Below are the top most used resources for our Graduate students.

As a graduate student, there are certain forms that may be helpful during your program and beyond. As always, if you have any questions, please reach out to your Graduate Office.
