Alternative Funding Opportunities

As stated on our Admissions Information page, almost all Water Resources Science students are fully funded. We have occasionally admitted Plan B Masters students who have the financial ability to fund their own education or have funding from their employer.

Estimate Your Costs

Graduate tuition rates vary, depending on whether you are a resident or non-resident student. The full-time tuition band is 6-14 credits. Any number of credits below this band are charged at the per credit rate. Credits above 14 are charged at the per credit rate as well. Students holding at least one-quarter time assistantships qualify for the resident rate. Click here for an online tool that will help you estimate the cost of your graduate education.
