5. What is the deadline to apply for admission into the graduate program?

We have rolling admissions, so there is no set deadline. We recommend that applicants with international transcripts complete their applications at least 2 months before the start of the term. Domestic students should apply 1-2 months before the start of the term. See our term start dates.

6. What is the cost of tuition and fees for the College of Business graduate programs?

The current rate of tuition is $1,250 per credit hour. The only fees students are responsible for are the matriculation fee ($160), the graduation fee ($150) and a parking fee ($80). For more information on the cost of attendance please review the tuition information here.

Professional Membership/Corporate Rate Policy:

  • Applicants are to report membership or affiliation with organization/company prior to admission.
  • Continuing students are to report membership or affiliation with organization/company prior to the tuition deadline for the current term in order to receive corporate rate for the current term.
  • If self-reported after the tuition deadline of the semester, the corporate rate will be applied for the next term. 

7. Do you offer scholarships for students pursuing graduate study?

We do offer the Gupta Scholarship, which reduces the per credit hour tuition rate from $1,250 per credit hour to $1,000 per credit hour. All admitted students will be reviewed for this scholarship with each incoming term. Many are considered for the scholarship; however, few are selected. There is not a separate application process. To learn more about this opportunity please visit the scholarships page. For information on external scholarships for graduate students please visit the graduate scholarship information page on the website.

8. Can graduate students apply for financial aid?

Graduate students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents are able to apply for federal financial aid. You would apply for financial aid by submitting a FAFSA. Once our Office of Financial Aid receives the FAFSA (after a student is admitted), they will put together a financial aid package that includes any grants and loans for which the student qualifies.

9. Can graduate students work on campus?

Graduate students are allowed to work on campus and on-campus employment opportunities are posted regularly for both domestic student jobs and international student jobs.
