Tuition and Cost of Attendance for 2014-2015

The Mandel School makes the difficult decision about where to earn a master’s degree just a little bit easier by offering generous financial aid. In 2013, students in our School’s master’s program received over $4.5 million in scholarships and stipends. For the 2014-2015 academic year, our tuition is $39,950. (The University releases new tuition rates normally in March each year.) However, on average, with the scholarships and stipends that our students receive, the tuition costs for in-state and out-of-state students is reduced. Our tuition cost, as compared to regional public universities, is thus very competitive. Our scholarships are generously supported by alumni and friends. We work closely with you on a one-to-one basis to make sure that those who want to receive an education at one of the top-ranked schools of social work can afford to do so.
