Tuition & Financial Aid

All out-of-state applicants are eligible on a competitive basis for in-state tuition of $2034 per three-credit course.

A limited number of graduate teaching fellowships will be awarded to MFA students, which comprise tuition remission, a stipend of approximately $26,000 per year, and health benefits, in exchange for the teaching of composition. Compensation and duties attached to the appointment are governed by a contract negotiated between the Rutgers University and the American Association of University Professors. 

Partial tuition scholarships will also be offered to qualified students.
