Tuition & Financial Aid

Tuition for the 2021-2022 academic year is $20,020 per quarter for full-time enrollment (3-4 credits). In 2021-2022, the EDI program will require four full-time quarters (fall, winter, spring, and fall), one part-time quarter (winter of the second year), and participation in the pre-term Design Boot Camp ($1000) for incoming students. Please refer to The Graduate School website for detailed information about the cost of tuition.

Many master’s students find funding through a variety of loan options or through other scholarship and resource opportunities, some of which are listed on McCormick’s website. Additionally, students are encouraged to visit the Evanston Office of Graduate Financial Aid for information on a variety of federal and private loan and funding options.

Students using financial aid to fund their graduate degree must comply with the Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy to maintain eligibility.

 

Funding Opportunities

Partial tuition awards are offered to exceptional applicants each year.  Recipients of these awards are selected based on the merit of their program applications.  No additional steps are necessary in order to apply for a tuition award. 

Students interested in supporting undergraduate coursework in design and innovation are encouraged to apply for Design Coach positions within the Segal Design Institute.  These positions pay hourly and applications are open prior to the start of each quarter.
