Cost & Tuition Planning

Below is the estimated total program cost for the MSACCY program. Please remember that program costs vary depending on the number of hours needed to meet degree requirements, hours taken per semester, and the status of the student.

  • Resident student tuition and fees - $28,800
  • Non-resident student tuition and fees - $44,400
  • International student tuition and fees - $44,800*

The calculations outlined above are based on completing 9 credit hours of enrollment per semester for three semesters and 3 credit hours during an additional semester (4 semesters/30 hours).

For PPA students that have completed 6 credit hours of double-count classes as part of their undergraduate career, below is an estimate based on taking 24 credit hours in two semesters (12 credit hours per semester):

  • Resident student tuition and fees - $22,400
  • Non-resident student tuition and fees - $34,900
  • International student tuition and fees - $35,300*

*For international students, medical insurance or proof of acceptable insurance is also required.

These costs are based on Fiscal Year 2024, which includes the Fall 2023, Spring 2024 and Summer 2024 semesters. The cost per credit hour for residents is $889.73 and non-residents is $1,409.73.

Financial Aid and Student Loans

Financial aid is available to US citizens, US nationals and U.S. permanent residents through the federal government. Financial aid is made up of grants and loans. Grants are very limited and need-based, so students are encouraged to complete their FAFSA as soon as possible after January 1st of the year they plan on attending UH. A graduate student in one of these categories is eligible for $20,500.00 per year in Federal Direct subsidized and/or unsubsidized loans. Repayment for both types of loans begins 6 months after graduation or anytime the student drops to less than 5 hours per semester. An application is available through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid website.

If the Federal Direct loans are not sufficient to cover a graduate student’s cost of attendance (as set by the UH Financial Aid Office) other types of loans are available. Students eligible for Federal Stafford Loans may also be eligible for the Grad Plus Loan or a private bank loan. These loans do check credit history. International students may receive a private loan so long as they have a creditworthy cosigner. Additional loan information is available on the UH website, or through your local bank.

The Bauer College of Business is unique in that it houses a financial aid advisor that exclusively serves its graduate students. If you have any questions regarding financial aid, please contact the Financial Aid Advisor, Karina Galvan, in the Bauer Graduate & Professional Programs Office at
