Cost and Funding
Cost and Funding
The cost of tuition and fees varies from year to year and is determined by the Utah legislature. The following links will help you determine the costs associated with a degree at Utah State University:
- Tuition and Fees (Registrar's Office) - This is where you will find the tuition schedule for on-campus students. It includes information related to undergraduate, graduate and regional campus students. Scroll down to see the Tuition and Fees Schedule for the current year (PDF).
- Online Students - Students taking classes online do not use the tuition fee table linked above. The current tuition-only rate for all ITLS online courses is $456 per credit.
Many of the Instructional Technology and Learning Sciences students, especially our online students, receive funding to complete their graduate work through their employer.
Ask your current employer if furthering your education and training would benefit their organization. The skills, training and tools students gain from mastering educational technology have literally benefited hundreds of other companies and organizations.

Financial Aid and Loans
To qualify for financial aid and student loans, you will first need to complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The FAFSA can take several hours to complete, but once completed, it can be renewed each year. It is a good idea to complete this application, regardless of your status or funding opportunities. Many scholarships and assistantships require a FAFSA to be on file.
After completing the FAFSA, follow the steps on Utah State's financial aid page. This page includes information about financial aid, student loans, and work study applications. Most graduate student easily qualify for student loans.
The Graduate Studies Financial Aid page may also be helpful when searching for financial aid.
The ITLS Department often has graduate research and teaching assistantships available. The department also offers four years of gauranteed funding to standout PhD applicants through our doctoral scholars program. All three forms of funding are awarded after admissions decisions are made.
Very often, information about new assistantship opportunities (inside and outside the ITLS Department), are emailed out on the student listserv. Prospective students are encouraged to join the mailing list and reach out to faculty for more information about potential opportunities.Subscribe to the Mailing List
Tuition Waivers and Assistance
ITLS faculty have been awarded many grants for their research. Many faculty budget in tution for their research assistants. Coverage for all types of students (non-resident, out-of-state, in-state and differential) is available based on assistantship status, degree program, and merit.
The Graduate Studies Assistantships Page includes additional information about graduate assistantships at Utah State.
Note that fees are always the responsibility of the student.
