Tuition Cost

Due to decimal restrictions, the cost per credit is rounded up prior to determining the total tuition amount. Reduced tuition rates may not be combined with other Purdue Global tuition reductions or ExcelTrackTM pricing; additional terms and conditions may apply. Tuition rates are subject to change at Purdue Global's discretion and, as a result, the tuition price may change. View general and program-specific fee information.

Veterans: Veterans per-credit tuition for graduate programs is calculated as $362 or $418, but is actually $361.20 and $417.10.

International: International students are required to pay one term of tuition and fees in full prior to the start of each term within the academic year.

Alumni: Must be a first-time enrollee in a Purdue Global master’s degree program; continuing and certificate program students are not eligible. Speak with an Advisor for additional information.

Completion time is based on the assumptions that you will enroll in time to begin classes on the start date selected, will remain enrolled for each consecutive term, and will maintain satisfactory academic standing in each term to progress toward completion of your program. Some programs will require you to change calendar tracks in order to complete the courses required. When this occurs, you may experience a delay of 2 weeks or more between the end of the term and the beginning of the next available term in the alternate calendar, which may increase the time it takes to complete the program.

The number of credits that can transfer will vary based on equivalent courses included in the degree plan and open elective requirements that can be fulfilled with prior learning credit. Purdue Global does not guarantee transferability of credit. All prior learning is reviewed on a case-by-case basis, and transfer and/or experiential credit is awarded at the exclusive discretion of Purdue Global. Not all credits received at other institutions may transfer. See the University Catalog for the Prior Learning Assessment policy.

In 2018, incoming Purdue Global students who passed EL206 and submitted a portfolio for evaluation earned an average of 33 quarter credit hours toward their Purdue Global undergraduate degrees. Note: these figures include data reported prior to the March 2018 purchase of Kaplan University by Purdue University and subsequent creation of Purdue University Global.
