Costs & Financial Aid

Tuition and Fees

Please note that tuition is computed on a per unit basis, with most classes fulfilling 3 units.
MBT-WP students typically take 1-2 courses per semester.

Please note MBT-WP students will be assessed a program fee when registering for each of the four core tax classes. For a detailed breakdown of tuition and other fees visit USC Schedule of Classes and click on "Tuition and Fees." MBT-WP tuition is based on the "Graduate Students" --> "Unit basis" figure. This page also details tuition, mandatory fees, student health insurance, parking, late registration and settlement fees, billing information and methods of payment.

Registration fees for summer are payable at the time of registration. In the fall and spring, registration fees are due the Friday before the first day of classes. Please note that tuition and fees are subject to change and are typically increasing each semester.
