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.

Cohort Entering Fall 2020

Tuition: $675 per credit hour

Program fees: $320 per credit hour

Credits required to graduate: 60

To apply for financial aid for the 2020-21 academic year, entering Speech Langauge Pathology graduate students must complete the 2020-21 FAFSA.

While tuition is the main expense in attending a graduate program, additional expenses should be taken into consideration. In order to be best financially prepared for attending our speech language pathology graduate program we provide an outline of expected additional expenses for students attending our program. Some of these expenses incurred are from mandatory items and requirements associated with the clinical work you will complete as part of the program. Some of these expenses are estimates based on typical student experiences and costs. Your choice of housing, dining, and/or transportation options, along with your personal expenses can have a significant impact on your total expenses.
