Tuition & Fees

An affordable option.

We understand that you are here out of a love for knowledge and the Jewish community; we strive to keep costs low while continuing to provide an unparalleled learning opportunity.

If costs are a concern, generous merit-based scholarships are available to qualified M.A. students.

Each year, two full-time Ph.D. students will be awarded full tuition scholarships plus a generous stipend, renewable for a second year. Generous scholarships toward tuition are available to all students admitted to the doctoral program.

In addition to a per-credit tuition charge, you are required to pay an administrative fee each semester, as well as a technology fee in the fall and spring. These fees help support our efforts to provide you with a high quality environment for study.
