Financial Aid

Students enrolled in the field-based program receive a tuition discount, reflected in the costs above, and pay a percentage of the regular graduate TESOL tuition, which increases $10 or more each year. Visit Graduate Student Financial Services for more information about financial aid.

Payment

Students must procure a check to pay for tuition, housing, and miscellaneous fees the first day of class each term, and pay for housing in Thailand on their own.

Students purchase textbooks in advance (July) for the entire academic year (two terms) at the University Bookstore (credit cards accepted).
