Undergraduate Financial Aid

​​​​​​​​​Tuition and Fees

The School of Music’s undergraduate tuition is billed as a guaranteed package rate, meaning you pay one flat fee each year for all of your coursework, between 12 to 18 credits per quarter, and you are billed the same rate each year you are in a program for up to four years. In other words, the tuition rate from your first year of the program is locked in place. Tuition for undergraduate students entering the fall of 2024 is $46,608 annually. Tuition is billed in thirds and due at the beginning of each quarter.​
