Explanation of Dual-Degree Charges

Students enrolling in the dual-degree programs pay a specific tuition rate that reflects the cost and the value of both degrees provided in the dual-degree program.

If a student chooses to enroll in a dual-degree program after attending as a law student, they will be charged a different tuition rate for their first year as a dual degree student. This adjusted rate reflects the cost of what the student would have paid if they were enrolled in a dual degree program during their first year.

For the following years, students will be charged the specific tuition rate for their particular dual-degree program.

Example (does not reflect actual costs):
• A student enrolling in the first year as a dual-degree student will pay $1500 per credit.
• A student who is enrolled in a separate degree program electing to enroll in the dual-degree program will pay $1800 per credit their first year and for the following years will pay $1500 per credit.
