    Program Costs (tuition and fees) and Assistantships

    Costs

    Place Holding Deposit: $250.00
    Cost per Doctoral Level Credit: $806.00
    Graduation Fee: $150.00

    Student Financial Support

    Currently two 20-hour assistantships are offered each year and they are reserved for first year students. With that in mind, courses are offered in the evening in order to accommodate students who must work while pursuing the doctoral degree. Since all Program students have a master’s degree in counseling or a closely related field, many are involved in the provision or supervision of psychological care in relation to their employment. Students working on their dissertation are eligible to apply for up to $500.00 each to defray associated expenditures and the Program has a Survey Monkey account exclusively for use by doctoral students.
