What it will cost you.

We believe that the Marygrove MAT program is a smart investment in your career– and your future–  which is hard to put a price tag on these days. However, you can expect to pay roughly $16,355 in tuition for our 30-credit program. That's $511 per credit hour, which, by comparison is very reasonable for an advanced degree. You''ll take two courses per term, and finish in five semesters, which means you can become a Master Teacher in just under two years!

We also have convenient payment plan options outlined below. Choose one that's right for you. 

Surprises are great, but not when it comes to your finances.

In addition to tuition costs you'll need to know how our fees are organized, so you can plan properly.

Administrative Fees

Program Fee: $450 billed your first term.

This is a one-time program fee of $450 that is billed to your account your first term. It includes an online access fee and Capstone Project evaluation fee.

Student Services Fee: $100 per semester.

This fee provides access to Web Advisor, which allows you to see your bill, review your financial aid status, and access your Mentor and grades. It entitles students to email for life and library services, which include: email reference service (where you can send questions related to research); access to 60 databases of periodicals including ERIC; access to the library catalog where you can borrow books online; and the net library with more than 24,000 eBooks. In addition, you get access to an online writing center that helps you with APA Writing Style and other questions related to writing assignments.

Materials Fee: (Optional) $80 per course or $160 per semester.*

This per course fee is nonrefundable and includes all required texts, journal articles, any other materials you need to complete the course, applicable taxes, and shipping and handling. The Textbook Plan automatically sends the appropriate materials directly to your home address each semester, and affords students many advantages. No shopping around for the correct editions, no ordering or waiting for books to become available. The non-refundable flat fee is $80 per class and is well worth your time and peace of mind!

*Students may choose to opt out of this fee by electing to purchase their own texts and materials at their own risk, since there is no guarantee of availability from other sources. ISBN numbers and retail prices for all texts and supplemental materials can be found on the online Marygrove Campus Bookstore.
