Tuition and Fees

Cost of a Newhouse degree

Syracuse University graduate students pay tuition per credit hour. The tuition rate for 2017-18 is estimated to be $1,500 per credit, pending approval from the Board of Trustees in May. Even though tuition increases every May, our master's students (with the exception of audio arts, media studies and public diplomacy) are locked in to the current rate for one calendar year so this rate will be in effect until August 2018. If a student registers for courses beyond the following August, they will pay the new rate, which is estimated to increase about 4 percent.

The Health and Activity fees, listed in the individual program cost breakdown PDFs linked below, are also estimates.

Newhouse technology fees will only be charged once, in the fall semester.

Billing date estimates have also been included in the PDFs below.
