Costs & Financial Support

Cost and financing is an important consideration as one considers taking time off from a successful career to attend school. 

Many of our students are sponsored by their employers, though most finance their own education at this stage of their career. Of those that finance their own school-related costs, many receive financial aid in the form of loans. The information provided in this section is meant to help estimate costs associated with participation.
