Tuition and Scholarships

Tuition

Tuition for the 2021-22 academic year is $729 per credit hour (subject to change by Seattle University Board of Trustees). The MNPL degree is a 45-credit program, so the total cost for tuition over the 22-months of the program is $32,805. Tuition rates for 2022-23 have not yet been determined. Additional student fees apply.

Scholarships

Our flexible masters will allow you to get the education you need while continuing to build your career. With multiple scholarships and financial aid available, and with faculty and community partners focused on helping you achieve your goals, we help you transform the world.

All admitted applicants are considered for Seattle University Graduate Scholarships based upon a holistic review of all information received in the application process and available funding, including the optional, but encouraged, statement of any special personal or family circumstances affecting your need for financial assistance. Awards are renewable for multi-year programs based upon satisfactory progress toward degree completion. Scholarship amounts are based upon full-time enrollment of 6 quarter credits per term. Students taking fewer than 6 quarter credits will have their award amount pro-rated accordingly.

Endowed scholarship consideration may require additional documents and recipients may be notified after admission depending upon the selection criteria. Domestic and permanent resident applicants are strongly encouraged to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be eligible for any need-based endowed or external scholarships and/or graduate student loans.

Mary Steward Hall Rising Leader Scholarship

Department Scholarships

AmeriCorps Alumni Scholarship

In recognition of their invaluable service and commitment to positive impact in our communities, Seattle University offers these benefits for AmeriCorps alums. 

Faculty Research

Faculty are active in research and continually apply for grants and funding. Periodically, faculty members will be awarded a grant that allows them to hire an MNPL student to help them with their project. Faculty will notify students as opportunities arise.
