Cost of Attendance

The published tuition for any college or university typically covers only a portion of the institution's actual costs. Oftentimes a subsidy equal to or greater than the posted tuition is provided through donor support, or in the case of public institutions, tax dollars.  While the average private college tuition in the U.S. is over $30,000 per year (before room and board) George Wythe University efficiently operates on roughly half that amount, and with our graduate tuition set at only one third.  Given that the University does not receive government funds, it is the generous commitment of donors that bridges the actual costs.  All students benefit from this support, which amounts to an automatic scholarship of roughly $4,500 per graduate student annually.

Financial Aid

A partial tuition waiver currently reduces the amount for returning students. Needs-based scholarships may also be available for various amounts on a case-by-case basis for those who qualify.  Inquire with the registrar for more details.  All tuition is due before the beginning of the semester.

Summer Semester (Online)

Tuition: All graduate students are eligible to take summer courses online in an accelerated 10-week term.  Tuition is class-by-class. 

All summer tuition must be paid in full by the due date prior to the beginning of the semester.  Due to the compressed time frame, students are encouraged to carefully consider the number of credits they enroll in during the summer term.
