Ph.D. in Education

Tuition and Fees: Academic Year

Students in the Education Ph.D. Program take 6-7 credit-hours of coursework in most semesters (see course sequence outline). This constitutes part-time status (fewer than 9 credit-hours), which qualifies them for tuition-and-fees that are assessed by credit-hour. Shown below is the link to the schedules of tuition and fees for part-time students which may change from year to year.

Students must provide affidavits of residence (see Application Process). There are three different schedules:   

  1. schedule for Rhode Island residents;

  2. schedule for "regional residents" (the Metropolitan Tuition Policy)

  3. schedule for other out-of-state residents.
