We have moved to a per credit hour tuition system starting Fall 2019, in order to create flexibility for students. This way, students can choose to finish in 2, 3, 4 semesters or even longer, and they can also enter the program in the Spring semester. MSF students need 30 credit hours to graduate. Also, international students need at least 9 credit hours of course work per semester to maintain the full-time status.

Financial Assistance

All applicants are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships based on their academic performance, such as GPA, GMAT/GRE scores, and other factors. The scholarships are very competitive and typically cover only partial tuition costs.
