Tuition rates may experience modest changes yearly, and are provided solely for general planning purposes for prospective students.
Tuition Exempt Students
The HCDE MS program is a self-sustaining program (i.e., not state-supported), and therefore does not participate in the university's Tuition Exemption program. HCDE's Bachelor's and PhD programs are the only two eligible for state employee tuition exemption.
Students must pay fees when registering. Fees cannot be billed, except for third-party payers; for many working professionals, their employers function as third-party payers. Tuition can be billed only to third-party payers within the United States. Students who have a third-party payer must include a purchase order or letter of authorization to bill with the registration form. For details on third-party payment, please contact PCE at email@example.com or 206-543-2310.
Financial aid may be available to students who have filed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) http://www.finaid.org/. For more information on eligibility, contact the Office of Student Financial Aid at 206-543-6101. Disbursement of financial aid funds from the University Student Accounts office to UW Educational Outreach is not automated. In order to facilitate the registration process, students with approved or pending financial aid through the Office of Student Financial Aid must sign and submit a UW Extension Payment Agreement Form (PDF) with their registration by fax, mail, or in person. Upon receipt, you will be enrolled and invoiced for the total fees. Payment of the invoice is due one week after the funds from financial aid are released.
