Tuition for the online M.A. in Education program is the same for all students regardless of residency.

  • Tuition Per Credit Hour (Spring & Summer 2024 Semesters): $933.00
  • Total Credit Hours Required: 30

MSU’s Tuition and Fees Calculator will help you estimate your tuition and student fees each semester. When using the calculator, select “In-State” for Residency, “Masters” for Level and “College of Education” for College. Most MAED students take one or two 3-credit courses per semester, so you can estimate your number of credits as 3 or 6 each semester.

MSU’s Office of the Controller’s website is the most up-to-date source of information related to tuition (the MAED is listed as “Online Education Masters”). Tuition for Lifelong Education students, persons interested in courses for professional development rather than degree applicability, is also listed on this page as “Education Lifelong.” Please contact the Office of the Controller with any specific questions.

Financial Aid

The College of Education’s Academic & Student Affairs Office has compiled some helpful information about financial aid on its website, including eligibility, how to start your application and when to apply.

Graduate financial aid advisors can be reached at ofagrad@msu.edu and through MSU’s Office of Financial Aid website. (Please note: This office is typically quite busy at the beginning of a semester.)
