MSW Direct is affordable!

As our MSW degree requires 60 credit hours, legal residents of Indiana will pay a tuition rate of $520 per credit hour, while non-residents pay $649 per credit hour. Factoring in miscellaneous costs (see Actual Costs below) our Indiana residents can expect to pay approximately $37,500 and non- residents can expect to pay approximately $45,540.

Advanced Standing   students are required to take 45 credit hours. Students can expect to pay approximately $23,450 for Indiana residents and $29,205 for non-residents.  In addition, there is a an administrative fee for the 15 credit hours waived.

When you enroll, you will incur fee assessments. You will need to budget for one trip to the Indianapolis Park 100 campus to attend the required face-to-face orientation lasting three days in total.  Convenient hotels nearby are about $100 per day, so you will want to plan accordingly.  Finally, you will need to budget for transportation to Indianapolis on this occasion.  Twice if you want to attend graduation!
