Tuition Explanation

All graduate tuition is assessed on a per credit basis. Graduate students typically take 8 or 12 credits (2 or 3 classes) per semester, hence tuition rates are provided for both credit loads in the above chart. 

If you do not register for the semester before the billing process, you will receive an estimated bill. This bill assumes you will register for 8 credits and lists charges accordingly. If you register for more or fewer than 8 credits, your final amount due will change.

Billing Schedule

Emerson College generates electronic tuition statements once a semester.  Statements can be viewed through TouchNet by logging in as a student through eCommon, or as an Authorized User.  Email notifications will be sent to students and their Authorized Users each time a new tuition statement has been uploaded.

  • Fall semester statements are available in late June and are due August 1.
  • Spring semester statements are available in early December and are due January 3.
  • Please adhere to the billing due date to avoid having your registration terminated.  Students with unresolved account balances will automatically be deregistered. For additional information, please read our Financial Policies.
  • Authorized Users can be updated on eCommon, under the Student Services tab by clicking on "Make a Payment."

If you have not registered at the time a tuition statement is generated, you will receive estimated full-time charges (8 credits) and will be billed accordingly. Once you have registered, your account charges will be updated and your new account balance will be viewable through eCommon or TouchNet.
