Tuition & Financial Planning

The Professional MBA program is comprised of 52.5 credit hours. Tuition is billed at $1485 per credit hour. With 52.5 credit hours that is a total of $77,963. The Student Association fee is $1.50 per credit hour, up to a maximum of $22.50 per semester.


All applications are considered for merit-based scholarships. No separate application is required to apply. Scholarships typically cover a specified number of credit hours for one year—for example, three or six credit hours—and cover tuition only. Awards are not renewable.


Most student loans are based on either financial need or creditworthiness and are available only to US citizens and permanent residents. GW students commonly use the Federal Stafford Loan Program, Alternative Education Loans, and the ACCESS Loan Program. Private loans may also be available. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) should be submitted to GW for federal loan programs. Please see the Office of Financial Assistance to learn how to apply for loans.
