Graduate Program Tuition

Tuition rates are determined by the Board of Trustees annually and are based on the operating costs of each program. Due to the substantial cost of offering accredited graduate programs in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, the tuition schedule for these programs differs from that of other graduate programs at Western.

Tuition rates are assessed based on a student’s residency status. There is an “in-state” and an “out-of-state” tuition rate. In accordance with the laws of Washington State, "in-state students" are charged a different credit hour rate than "out-of-state" students. Residency determinations for the purpose of assessing tuition rates are handled by the Western Washington University Registrar’s Office. Please note that tuition does not include the cost of textbooks or materials and is subject to change.

The below tuition rates are estimated for the 2017-2018 academic year for the incoming 2017 cohort.
