Tuition and Fees
Part-time and Full-time students should consult the Bursar's per-credit tables for graduate tuition
and fee rates:
- New York State and Out-of-State Residents (On-Campus and Online)
- Out-of-State Residents Enrolled in Fully Online Programs
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.
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.
