Financial Information

Invest in your biggest asset – Yourself!

One of the most important concepts in business is understanding how to calculate a Return on Investment (ROI). The relatively low cost of our graduate programs combined with our graduates’ improved employment prospects contributes to a very high ROI–rivaling private and Ivy League graduate degrees just about anywhere.

Boise State University Graduate Programs Fees

These costs are based on the most recent 2018-2019 Academic Year Fees. Fees are subject to change and typically increase each academic year; please see the University Tuition and Fees page for complete information. Tuition is due prior to the start of each semester.  The Professional MBA program consists of 7 credit hours each Fall and Spring Semester and 3 credit hours each Summer.

Idaho Resident$448$448$3,136$21,504*
Non Resident$787$448$5,509$35,742*

*This total tuition number is estimated using the program’s required 48 credit hours and using the 18-19 Academic Year Fees. The cost will increase as the University increases its student fees. This number is tuition only – we suggest budgeting an additional $100/credit hour for books and supplies.

For Residency questions please see the Registrar’s Idaho Residency page; graduate students who recently moved to Idaho should check the “How does a student establish domicile in Idaho” section of that page.

Financial Aid

Please visit the Financial Aid website for specific information for graduate students.

Eligible graduate students are considered automatically for unsubsidized loans if the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is submitted each year. Professional MBA students are considered above half-time (5+ credits) each fall and spring for loan eligibility. Professional MBA students should plan for other funding for summer sessions when they are enrolled less-than-half-time (3 credits) and ineligible for loans.
