Tuition and Transfer Credits

Madsen Center

Refer to the following tuition and transfer credit information for online Master programs in education (i.e. M.Ed and M.Ed-SPED).


Per credit costs are determined by cohort. Students entering the program in a particular term will have the same rate of tuition throughout the program as long as the student is continuously enrolled.  Any breaks in enrollment will result in the tuition changing to the current rate at the point of re-enrollment.

  • Fall 2018 - Spring 2020 - Tuition is $425 per credit.  Including the $60 application fee, the complete cost of the 30-credit degree program is $12,810.
  • Summer 2020 - Tuition is $465 per credit.  A $500 non-refundable program fee and a $60 application fee will be assessed, which brings the complete cost of the program to $10,325 (plus the costs of continuing education courses completed for graduate credit).

Transfer Credits

As described in the Augustana graduate catalog, students may transfer up to 9 graduate credits from accredited institutions (colleges and universities), granted they are previously approved as relevant to the student’s plan of study by the Program Director and Director (some restrictions apply, as outlined in the graduate catalog). For transfers starting in Summer of 2020 and beyond, credits will only be accepted and applied to the area of concentration in M.Ed and electives in M.Ed. - SPED.
