For details about your costs, you can use a few resources:

  • BGSU's Office of the Bursar.
  • BGSU Tuition and Fees 2019-2020. Not all fees listed in the Tuition and Fee schedule apply to students in the MA in English online program, which is part of the Distance Learning system (page 4 of the Tuition and Fee Schedule). Non-degree-seeking students or students in a Main Campus face-to-face degree program who are taking online courses are assessed the Main Campus tuition and fee rates (page 3 of the Tuition and Fee Schedule).
  • Calculate Your Cost of Attendance Tool. In the "Choose Your Campus" drop-down menu, Students in the MA in English online programs should select "Distance Campuses." Non-degree-seeking students should select "Main Campus."

Please note: the Calculate Your Cost of Attendance tool tells you the tuition and fees for a single semester. If you put in the entire program's credit hours (31 hours) it will assume you are asking about taking 31 credit hours in a single semester, and thus will not return an accurate calculation.

The online MA programs do not offer graduate assistantships; students are responsible for all tuition and fees. However, financial aid and awards information can be found at the following sites:
