An admitted M.S.P. student will qualify for a special graduate scholarship. The University provides these awards based on the enrollee having received a baccalaureate degree and the perceived potential for success in both this academic program and in the current/future employment arena. Individual scholarship students are encouraged to seek additional funding and/or reimbursement from their employing agencies. A per month payment plan and/or a student loan program will be made available on tuition balances due after all scholarship monies have been applied to a student account. The University accepts both personal checks and MasterCard/Visa/Discover/American Express in addition to cash for the payment of tuition and fees. The tuition cost(s) for scholarship students will be calculated at the following rate:
$ 410.00 per semester hour
$ 2,870.00 per semester (taking seven  hours)
$ 3,280.00 per semester (taking eight  hours)
