DOCTORAL Tuition/Fee Examples:

The doctoral program is 72 credits and a maximum of 27 credits can be accepted into the program upon approval. Up to 12 credits from a master's program and up to 27 credits of post-master's work such as licensure or doctoral courses from a previous institution can be accepted into the program upon approval. Students with 27 credits accepted into the doctoral program will have 45 credits remaining to complete the doctoral degree. Below are some example scenarios:

Example 1

Example 2

Example 3

72 credits needed for doctoral degree
-12 cr. master's credits accepted
-15 post-master's credits accepted
45 credits remaining to take

45 credits x $612.77 (SCSU tuition/fees) = $27,575 total tuition/fees

72 credits needed for doctoral degree
-27 post-master's licensure credits accepted
45 credits remaining to take

45 credits x $696.28 (Twin Cities tuition/fees) = $31,333 total tuition/fees

72 credits needed for doctoral degree
-12 cr. master's credits accepted
60 credits remaining to take

45 doctoral credits x $612.77 (SCSU tuition/fees) = $27,575
15 licensure credits (MN Resident on campus) (SCSU tuition/fees) x $403.32 = $6,050

$27,575+$6,050 = $33,625 total tuition/fees

*Tuition and student fees rates are subject to change.
*Each student's scenario will be different based on the number of credits accepted into the program and the tuition/fee rates each year.
