Nursing Program Costs

Tuition and fee structures for School of Nursing degree programs and individual graduate tracks may be state-supported ("tuition") or fee-based ("program fees") through UW Professional & Continuing Education (PCE).  Find the tuition or fee structure for your program in the tables provided below.

Tuition and course fees are subject to change.


State-Supported Tuition Educational Options

Tuition for state-supported programs is set by the Washington State legislature.

Out-of-state students should check the out-of-state tuition rates and refer to the Residence Classification Office for definitions of residency status: http://www.washington.edu/students/reg/residency/

Programs and tracks not listed as Fee-Based Programs follow the University's state-supported tuition structure. UW state-supported tuition rates include the cost of tuition plus relevant student fees. For information about UW student fees, please see: http://opb.washington.edu/content/student-fee-information

Fee-Based Educational Options

School of Nursing fee-based education costs are set by UW Professional & Continuing Education in collaboration with the School of Nursing.  Fee-based options are self-sustaining; the fees cover the cost to run the educational option.

Cost per credit for fee-based options of the School of Nursing are determined annually.  See our Fee-Based Programs Frequently Asked Questions page for more information on School of Nursing educational options offered through UW Professional & Continuing Education (PCE).

Students enrolled in fee-based options do not pay additional UW “student fees.” Please also view the Other Expenses information on the right sidebar for additional costs you will be responsible for as a Health Sciences/School of Nursing student.
