Tuition for the CSD post-bacc program is $495 per credit for the 2021–2022 academic year. Total cost will vary based on how many courses are completed. Tuition amount is for the CSD post-bacc program only. Books and personal items are not included in this amount. Federal financial aid is not available for CSD post-baccalaureate students; therefore, a FAFSA application is not relevant.
