Program Cost and Payment
Tuition charges are based firstly on your campus location, and secondly on your residency or non-residency status. Check your admission certificate for these details.

E_M Course Tuition
Engineering Technology and Management (ETM) courses (E_M) are self-sustaining courses managed by the College of Engineering and Architecture and therefore their tuition per credit is higher than regular tuition credit, however MSAG has negotiated a reduced rate for E_M tuition ($825/credit). A limited number of students may qualify for tuition adjustments based on financial need. For more information, contact Patti Elshafei, ETM Program Coordinator at email@example.com or 509-335-0125.
U of I Cooperative Course Tuition and Fees
Washington State University (WSU) and the University of Idaho (UI), both land-grant institutions closely located (8 miles apart) on the WA/ID border, have a rich history in cooperative education. The WSU/UI cooperative course agreement allows students at either institution to enroll in designated courses at the other institution.
MS in Ag students who have chosen the Food Science and Management option will take several online courses through the University of Idaho (UI) to meet core requirements (because WSU/UI has a bi-state School of Food Science). Students will pay tuition through WSU, except for an additional $35/credit fee to the UI for online courses. More explanation is provided here.
Your Student Account
Students must provide their own funding for the program. Online students will not be offered assistantships for this program.
Students earning a degree through the Global Campus are eligible for the same financial assistance as that received by other WSU students. More information is available here.
Note: International students are NOT eligible for financial aid through WSU, and international students residing in the United States who have a visa status of F1, F2, J1, J2, or B2 may be limited in the number of credits in which they can enroll through WSU Online. Contact the International Programs office for more information, or 509-335-2541.
Residency for Pullman Students
Check your admission certificate for your resident or non-resident classification assignment. Because tuition is considerably less expensive for Washington residents than for non-residents, Pullman campus students may be interested in establishing Washington residency. Detailed information about this process is available through the Office of the Registrar’s website. Students should review this detailed information as soon as possible after acceptance to a graduate program at WSU; much of the required documentation must be in place for a full year at the time of application. The deadline for residency applications for a given term is noted on the WSU Academic Calendar (it is generally the 30th day of the academic term, but be sure to check the exact date).
