Tuition and Scholarships
Tuition and Fees
Out-of-pocket education costs differ, depending on your eligibility for scholarships, financial aid, or other types of assistance, such as employer reimbursement and the materials/software required.
Program costs are calculated by credit hour. Please visit our PP-OTD Sample Curriculum page for sample credits per semester and the Online Tuition & Fees page for the most up-to-date tuition costs. Merit-based scholarships are available for post-professional students. Note that Boston University reserves the right to revise the schedule of tuition and fees without notice. The costs provided are for the current academic year and may change for future academic years.
Please contact Student Accounting Services at 617-353-2264 with questions or concerns about tuition payment. Students have the option of paying their tuition bill online by visiting the Money Matters area of the Student Link.
Scholarships and Financial Aid
The ability to finance your education is always an important consideration when making plans to return to school. To help defray the cost of tuition, we offer merit-based scholarships to qualified post-professional candidates. Our Assistant Director of Graduate Financial Aid can assist you in exploring additional financing options.
Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans are available to eligible students. You must be a US citizen or an eligible noncitizen (permanent resident) to receive federal loans. Completion of a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine eligibility for federal financial aid is required. It is also required that you are registered for a minimum of 6 credits per semester. Please submit completed “Direct Loan Request for Graduate Students” to our Assistant Director of Graduate Financial Aid Janet Turner.
When applying for an alternative loan, you may choose the lender of your choice. Visit All Other Graduate Student Loans to compare a sampling of lenders and determine which option may best fits your needs.
