Application Fees

All application fees are nonrefundable.

  • U.S. applicants for degree programs and postbaccalaureate and graduate credit certificate programs: $65
  • International applicants for degree programs and postbaccalaureate and graduate credit certificate programs (for anyone applying for spring, summer, or fall 2024 admission): $65
  • International applicants for degree programs and postbaccalaureate and graduate credit certificate programs (for anyone applying for spring 2025 admission or later): $85  
  • Nondegree admission (U.S. or international): $30

An application will not be reviewed until the application fee is paid. Applicants should pay within the application as the final step after all other sections of the application are completed.  In unique situations where an applicant or another individual needs to pay for a previously submitted application, this can be done by credit card via the Graduate School Payment Portal, or by check/money order using the Application Fee Form.

Application fee waivers are not available from the Graduate School. If you are interested in requesting an application fee waiver, please contact the graduate program directly with your request.
