Tuition & Costs

Your cost for attendance is determined by a few factors. Undergraduate and graduate programs will have a different rate. Some programs are tuition-based and charge different rates for Washington and non-Washington residents, while fee-based programs will charge the same amount regardless of your state of residence.
