Tuition and Transfer Credits

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.

  • Tuition is $465 per credit.  A $500 non-refundable program fee and a $60 application fee will be assessed. The total cost of the program is $10,325. Additional tuition costs apply if continuing education credits have not been completed.

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 (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. A maximum of 6 transferred credits will be allowed for the Early Childhood Special Education program.
