Executive MHA Finances
Tuition and Related Fees
The 2013-2014 (autumn-summer) tuition for students in the Executive MHA Program is $800 per credit. For additional explanation of expenses see the Estimated EMHA Program Expenses page.
Parking at the classroom site in Bellevue is free.
Tuition includes some coverage of discretionary expenses for student-related activities (such as orientation, graduation, special events).
All fees, including tuition, and credit loads are subject to change.
Annual tuition increases are expected each autumn quarter and will affect both incoming and continuing students.
Tuition payments are paid directly to UW Professional & Continuing Education (PCE) and are due, in-full, prior to the official UW start date of each quarter. As credit loads for each quarter vary, quarterly tuition totals will vary. Specific details and instructions regarding registration, tuition payment, and related fees and deadlines are distributed by the MHA Program staff, typically 4-6 weeks in advance of each quarter.
Enrollment Confirmation Deposit
Upon accepting an offer of admission to the MHA Program, prospective students must pay a $250 enrollment confirmation deposit. This deposit is non-refundable; however, it will be applied to your tuition once you have enrolled. Because it is applied to your tuition, it is not included as a separate item in the estimate of expenses.
Federal Aid: Executive MHA students may apply for federal financial aid (low-interest student loans). For information on federal financial aid, how to apply (FAFSA-Free Application for Federal Student Aid), applicable deadlines, etc., visit the Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) web site at http://www.washington.edu/students/osfa/graduate. In particular, see the links for "Graduate Student." If you have additional questions about the process or form after reviewing the web site, please contact OSFA at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-543-6101.
Tuition Exemptions and Other Aid: Students in self-sustaining programs are not eligible for aid funded by state tuition revenue. These include the tuition exemption program for UW and WA State employees, the Graduate University Grant, and institutional tuition waivers.
