    Graduate Full-Time Tuition Rate

    For more details on tuition and fees please visit the Student Financial Services page.

    Most of the tuition charge reflects the operating fee, which is the portion waived for students with a graduate service appointment (see "Graduate Assistantships" in the left-side menu). Also included in the tuition charge are the building fee and the services and activities fee, which by state law may not be waived. Students enrolled in graduate courses in the Master of Business Administration Program are charged $450 per credit for those credits. All students in the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program are charged an additional $500 per quarter.  All students in the Occupational Therapy Program are charges an additional $975 per semester. All graduate students in the Communication Disorders Program are charged an additional $400 per semester.

    The transportation fee went into effect in winter 2008. This fee helps to subsidize ridership by EWU community members on Spokane Transit Authority (STA) buses during the regular academic year from late September through mid-June. Anyone with an EWU Eagle Card may ride buses for free during this period simply by swiping the card upon boarding a bus on any route. STA offers regular service to and from the EWU main campus in Cheney and the EWU Spokane campus.

    The recreation center fee went into effect in spring 2008. This fee was approved by a student vote as the student contribution to pay for construction of the new University Recreation Center.
