Graduate Tuition

The Department of Education mandates institutions to publish a Cost of Attendance (COA). The COA is an estimate of expenses you can reasonably expect to pay in one year of attendance of a university. The COA includes both direct and indirect costs. Direct costs include charges paid directly to Queens, like tuition, fees, and room and board for students who live on campus. Indirect costs are other expenses that should be considered while enrolled, like books, supplies, and transportation costs.

A student’s actual costs may vary depending upon food and housing selections, course fees, and individual decisions about enrollment. Regardless of actual costs, your total financial aid may not exceed the stated Cost of Attendance.

Public vs. Private

Did you know? Public university tuition is subsidized by taxpayer dollars so the schools offer few scholarships. Private universities, on the other hand, often have a higher tuition, but use a combination of grants and privately funded scholarships to offset costs.

And with merit and need-based aid provided by the institution, as well as a state grant specifically for N.C. private schools, the direct cost of a private education is only nominally higher than a public one.

How am I going to pay for it all?

Now that you’ve seen all of the costs, we know what you’re thinking… How am I going to pay for all of this!? Applying for financial aid should be your next step. At Queens, you’ll have a financial services counselor to educate you on your expected cost of education, as well as how to create the best financial aid package possible.

Still have a balance?

You’ve gotten your financial aid package but you still have a balance? Scholarships and grants can help! There are many options to choose from so begin your search early.
