Tuition and Residency
Visit the Office of the Registrar’s website to see current tuition rates. Once you’re at the site, follow these steps:
- Choose a semester, select your term.
- Choose a student program, select Graduate or most Capstone Certificates.
Fall and spring semesters will be 8+ credits. Summer credits vary depending on your program and the year.
UW–Madison tuition rates are also assessed depending on your official “residence for tuition purposes” status. All students are required to establish their residence status as a part of admission or reentry to the University. More about residency can be found on the Office of Registrar’s website.
