Cost of Attendance

Tuition and fees and other non-degree costs for full-time graduate students vary by academic year. There may be extra charges for taking classes in either the intersession or in summer. 

The Krieger School offers comprehensive financial assistance to graduate students via fellowships, research assistantships, teaching assistantships, other academic employment possibilities, and tuition waivers. Federal loans and work study are available on the basis of financial need to U.S. citizens and permanent residents. All full-time, resident, doctoral graduate students in the schools receive free health insurance. The university does not provide housing for graduate students.


Many departments are able to offer some fellowship funding to PhD students, but it is usually not the same for masters students. There are several fellowships which provide financial awards to assist in the recruitment of graduate students from diverse backgrounds, including underrepresented minority students, women, and students from economically or socially disadvantaged circumstances.
