Tuition & Financial Aid

Program Cost

The Full-Time and Mid-Career MSIM programs are self-sustaining/fee-based programs. Tuition is charged on a per credit basis directly to the student. The University of Washington reserves the right to change tuition and fees without prior notice, and tuition is expected to increase in the future. Note that the cost of the MSIM program is the same for both WA State residents and non-residents. MSIM students are also eligible to receive financial aid to help cover the cost of tuition.
