A total of 42 credits is required for the master's degree. Program and tuition is charged on per-credit basis. Students pay instructional fees course-by-course, quarter-by-quarter when the registration period opens at the beginning of each quarter.

UW graduate students are also responsible for University fees which are charged directly to the student’s account (accessible through MyUW).

The quarterly tuition and fees do not include the cost for books and other course materials. Tuition rates are subject to change yearly and are provided solely for planning purposes.
