Tuition & Financial Aid
An Investment in Yourself
The MSF offers one of the best returns on investment of any top-ranked program; aided by its competitive price, program sponsored fellowships, and financial aid, any student can put together a plan to participate in the Notre Dame MSF program today.
Tuition for the MSF program starting in January 2018 is $61,405. Tuition includes:
- Course instruction
- Educational materials (course materials, text books, software, etc.)
- Lodging and most meals during immersion weeks
- Breakfast and lunch on class days
Please note that tuition does not include travel expenses or accommodations for non-immersion weeks, nor does it include international flights.
Most MSF students finance their education through a combination of Notre Dame sponsored fellowships, external scholarships, personal income or savings, and graduate student loans; including both private and federal loan programs. While some students qualify for corporate financial sponsorship through their employer, it is not required to apply to the program.
Financial Aid through Student Loans
Notre Dame MSF students may be eligible for full financial aid packages as outlined on our financial aid website.
If you will be seeking financial aid, the first step is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is the official application for federal student aid at the University of Notre Dame. The Office of Financial Aid will assist you in exploring various loan opportunities.
Students can direct their inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org; this email address is specifically for graduate and professional students who have questions regarding financial aid.
We consider all admitted students for fellowships primarily based on each student’s academic and professional profile compared with other admitted students in each particular class. Recipients are selected for fellowships based on leadership experience, community service, and other outstanding personal or professional accomplishments. Previous academic performance, letters of recommendation, each applicant’s personal statement and demonstrated need also aid in the fellowship decision process. Applicants may indicate their desire to be considered for a fellowship on their application.
The University of Notre Dame has participated in the Post-9/11 GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon Program since August 2009. For more information on this program please visit this website.
