Graduate Tuition & Fees

Graduate student tuition charges are based on the number of credit hours taken and residency/non-residency status. Tuition and per-credit-hour fees are not capped; they are charged for each hour taken. Tuition is established by the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees, set annually, and subject to change without written notice. Students must pay their tuition and fees or make financial arrangements with the Cashier's Office by the posted payment deadlines. Payment plans are available through the Cashier's Office.
