Unlike most doctoral programs, our Ed.D. program guarantees a “locked-in” tuition rate for the first three years in which a student is enrolled in the program. Moreover, tuition costs are waived for the last two terms of the third year and the first two terms of the fourth year of enrollment in the program (as needed, to help accommodate a candidate’s financial situation to complete the degree). Please see below for current program costs.
