Your graduate tuition at A-State is based on a variety of factors including where you live, how many hours you are enrolled in, and which college houses your selected major. In addition to your tuition costs, students pay fees to support campus facilities, equipment, and programs.

Calculating Your Tuition

To calculate your tuition, multiply the tuition per credit hour rate and the required hourly fees by the number of hours you are taking for a given semester. If you meet any of the required term fee or additional fees criteria, add them to your total number.

For a detailed list of our tuition and fee information, review the tables below.
