Tuition & Financial Aid
Unlike most doctoral programs, our Ed.D. program guarantees a “locked-in” tuition rate for the first three years in which a student is enrolled in the program. Moreover, tuition costs are waived for the last two terms of the third year and the first two terms of the fourth year of enrollment in the program (as needed, to help accommodate a candidate’s financial situation to complete the degree).
|International Application Processing Fee
|Student Service Fee
||$200 per semester
|Washington, DC Trip (required)

|*The tuition rate for a new doctoral cohort is determined prior to the start of an academic year. Fees and trip costs are subject to change during enrollment in the program.
**The above estimated costs do not include costs for textbooks and materials, costs for a computer and accessories including a webcam, dissertation related costs, and other costs typically associated with a doctoral program such as academic regalia.
