GSE Estimated Program Cost
Program cost estimates are based on 2016-17 resident graduate PSU tuition and PSU fees only. This chart is provided to help you estimate the minimum tuition and fees for program completion. The PSU tuition calculator can be used to provide a more specific estimate based on the number of credits that you plan to take each term.
Please note that additional fees may apply depending on the course of study that you choose to pursue and the specific courses for which you enroll. For additional program specific costs (eg - exams, fingerprinting, licensure), please contact the department directly.
A variety of financial aid and scholarship options are available to GSE students to offset the costs listed below. Visit our website for specific details on how to qualify and apply.
PLEASE NOTE: PSU requires that all students taking 5 or more in-load, non self-support credits have comprehensive health insurance coverage. All eligible students will automatically be enrolled in the Aetna Student Health Insurance Plan available through PSU, which is $560 for each Fall, Winter, and Spring terms (Spring term covers insurance coverage throughout the summer). This cost is NOT factored into the tuition and fee estimator. If you already have a comparable health insurance plan in place, you may waive out of the student plan, and will not be charged the $560 per term. For more information on the PSU Plan or waiver process visit www.pdx.edu/shac/insuranceplan.
PSU charges a $40/credit fee for online courses. That fee is not included in the above esitmates unless the program is completely online.
Matriculation Fee: All new students to PSU must pay a one time matriculation fee of $356.00 which will be included in your first term bill.
- Note: Students that have attended PSU previously will not be required to pay this fee again.
