What will I pay for Instructional Design Certificate program?

The cost of your degree depends on many factors, including:

  • Where you live
  • Where you will take classes online or on campus
  • Scholarships or student employment you receive
  • Time to complete

In addition, WOU many change tuition and fees between today and when you finish your program, changing the overall cost estimate.

Try the net price calculator in the Financial Aid pages and use the information below to sketch out your Instructional Design Certificate budget.

Tuition:

The Instructional Design Certificate program requires 24 total credits.

Starting fall term 2018, tuition for online courses will be $493 per graduate credit. Tuition and fee rates are determined by the Western Oregon University Rules for extended programs and are subject to change.

For on-campus courses, tuition and fees are combined in a per-credit resident rate, $657 starting fall 2018. In addition to those fees, students taking 6 hours or more are assessed a $139.00 health service fee.

You can take all/most of your courses online, which lends itself to fewer fees. Students who are taking only online courses will not be charged campus fees but may be charged fees related to that course (such as for materials or supplies).

Find more information about costs on the Financial Aid Department’s pages.

Fees:

A $300 one-time matriculation fee is assessed on all new graduate students.

Software purchases:

Students in the Instructional Design Certificate program will likely need to have access to the Microsoft Office suite (or similar) and may find it useful to purchase additional software used in various courses within the program.
