Tuition and Financial Aid

  • Tuition is 60 units, $958 per unit (approx $57,480 for the whole graduate degree program)
  • For financial aid, please check FASO
  • The MDes is a "special session program", and Special Session programs are not supported by the State General Fund appropriations, making it not eligible for any financial aid from the State of California. Special Session matriculated students may qualify for federal financial aid. 
  • Additional fees will be charged only if students want access to San José State University student services, such as Santa Clara County transit services, student body organizations, health care, and recreational activities.
