What will I pay for MAT Initial Licensure 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.

Tuition:

The Master of Arts in Teaching: Initial Licensure program requires 56 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).
