Tuition & Fees

Tuition for the 2019-2020 academic year will be $25,500. In addition, students in the Sioux Falls Area track will be assessed $100 per semester for Student Activity Fees, and international students will be assessed a one-time International Student Fee of $425. Your Augustana bill will reflect the total of these costs. Bills are due on August 15 and January 15 each year. Tuition increases approximately three percent (3%) each year. Progression through the program takes 21 months (two academic years). Other expenses include housing and meals, books and supplies, transportation, and personal and miscellaneous expenses. Tuition and an allowance for these expenses make up the Cost of Attendance (COA).

The primary responsibility for financing a graduate education rests upon the student and is an investment in career preparation and personal fulfillment that should yield dividends throughout the student’s life. Students may be eligible for federal loans to supplement their own resources and help cover the COA. For more information, please refer to the Graduate Catalog or contact Augustana’s Financial Aid office.

Additional fees, such as the costs of required immunizations, background checks, and drug screens necessary to complete clinical rotations, and for access to certain University resources, may arise throughout the program and are the responsibility of the student.

The Augustana-Sanford Genetic Counseling Graduate Program does not offer any assistantships, fellowships, or scholarships. However, you may be able to receive outside financial support from other organizations, such as hospitals or health systems. This type of financial support is handled directly and exclusively by the organizations which offer it.

Please email genetics@augie.edu with any questions you may have.
