For the purposes of financial aid graduate students are packaged at the graduate full time COA (9 or more credits per semester); however, the COA may be adjusted based on a student’s actual enrollment. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships to request an adjustment if you are enrolled in less than 9 credits, or if your tuition and fees exceed the weighted average amount originally used in the COA.


*Tuition & Fees reflect the weighted average cost based on enrollment type (full, ½ & less than ½ time).
** Books & Supplies may vary by program. This amount reflects a weighted average cost based on credit load. 
*** Room & Board: This amount reflects the weighted average cost of living both on and off campus, however students living off campus will not see these charges on their MSUB bill.
