Tuition & Fees

After extensive market analysis, financial modeling and numerous discussions with various stakeholders, the School of Social Work concluded that it needed to increase its tuition in order to offer the very best education our nationally ranked programs have to offer. At the same time, we have worked hard to create new avenues of direct financial support for more students. Please see Financial Aid and Scholarships for details.
