Financing the Master's Program

The majority of students enrolled in Master’s programs at Brown are self-supported.

  • Our tuition scale is competitive.
    • Students pay per course credit and are required to take 8 courses over 4 semesters. Learn more about tuition and fees.

    • Important Notes:

      • The Grad School's tuition rates are based on a 4-course per semester schedule.
      • The BME Master's Program does not follow the pay scale for the Engineering Master's program (it's cheaper!).
    • The BME Master’s degree is an eight credit degree which students typically complete over two years. The 2019-2020 cost of tuition is $ 7,139 per credit.

      • With fees, the cost for the 1st year of a 2-year degree is $29,624 for the 2019-2020 academic year. The 2-year degree will cost approximately $59,284, but please note: tuition costs may increase in 2020-2021. The 2019-2020 Graduate Financing Worksheet can be a useful tool to for financial planning.
      • Students can also spread billed costs by enrolling in an Installment Payment Plan.
  • Limited funding opportunities are available.
