Tuition & Fees

To help students more accurately prepare their graduate school budgets, Saint Mary’s College has established a cohort priced tuition and fees plan that locks tuition and program fees for the duration of the program. Tuition rates will not increase from year to year as long as the student remains enrolled in the program or takes an approved leave of absence. If students leave the program and later return, they will pay the new tuition and program fee rate of the new cohort they are joining
