Tuition and Fees

All students should consult the Bursar's website for complete tuition information as it relates to their full-time/part-time and residency status.  Below are the per-credit tables for graduate tuition and fee rates:

Master's and Certificate Students

Financing for master’s degree and certificate programs may be available through grants, scholarships, loans (federal and private), employer reimbursement programs, and time-option payment plans offered through the University. In addition, students may pursue campus employment opportunities.

Non-Matriculated Students

Generally, students not enrolled in a degree granting program are not eligible for federal or state aid. However, if the courses are prerequisites leading to admission into a degree-granting program, and the student is enrolled for six or more credits, we can offer a federal student loan.

Stony Brook recognizes the need for helping students manage the expenses of higher education. To this end, the University offers a Time Option Payment Plan (TOPP), a program that allows students to make equal and consecutive payments throughout the year. For details on this program, including enrollment deadlines,  visit the Bursar's website.
