Tuition in GLS is set independently from that of the rest of The Graduate School and is based on a per unit (per class) rate. GLS students have the option of part- or full-time study three semesters (fall, spring, summer) per year.
Tuition rates are subject to change each year but typically increase by no more than 4% annually.
In light of additional financial stress the Covid-19 pandemic has created for many students and their families, GLS tuition will remain at the prior year rate of $1,404 per unit, or $4,212 for a three-unit course, for 2021-22.
In addition to tuition, all students pay a one-time Transcript Fee. Full-time students also must pay the following fees: the Health Fee, the Graduate Student Services Fee, the Activity Fee, the Recreation Fee, plus Health Insurance. If a student is not registered in any courses in a given semester, they register in Continuation (CTN) and pay a $100 Continuation Fee. This ensures that a student is continuously registered in The Graduate School.
Below are the Cost of Attendance tables calculated by The Graduate School. Part-time students may take one or two courses per term at the cost of $4,212 per 3-unit course.
