Valparaiso University’s Graduate School offers financial assistance for new and current students including scholarships, assistantships, internships, campus employment, and even federal loans that can assist paying your costs in full.
Graduate tuition at Valpo is surprisingly affordable. As one of the highest ranked institutions in the Midwest for value and academic reputation, our costs remain lower and competitive with most private graduate schools across the nation. The majority of our graduate degree programs can be completed either part-time or full-time within 18-24 months at a tuition and fee cost of approximately $24,296 for the entire graduate program (for programs with 37 credits). The total duration and cost varies by graduate program.
Federal loans are available to help cover the entire cost of tuition for incoming domestic students. Be sure to complete your FAFSA online before or during the admission process.
Scholarships and graduate assistantships are available for students for select programs. Admitted students must display exceptional academic and/or professional achievement. Students interested in scholarships are encouraged to contact an admissions staff member within the Graduate School at 219-464-5313 or Graduate.School@valpo.edu. Awards are made at the time of admission and indicated on acceptance letters.
There are a limited number of Research Assistantships available to graduate students. The amount and number of assistantships awarded vary by year and department. Please contact your program’s department chair for further updates and information regarding this topic.
Graduate assistantships may be available for athletic teams, based on each team’s seasonal needs. Assistantships may offer partial or full tuition and/or a stipend. For more information, visit http://www.valpoathletics.com/ to contact athletic team coaches.
