Tuition and Fees

Additional Housing Expenses: Incoming students are advised that since MSPA programming begins in mid-to-late August, MSPA students should plan to arrive on campus by mid August. Students living on campus must request early move-in from Housing and plan for ~$1,500 to cover this expense (costs vary according to move-in date and housing type).

Additional Tuition Costs: The MSPA Program is 9 quarters in length.  If a student is not making standard academic progress and is unable to complete the program in 9 quarters, additional tuition costs will apply for any additional quarters needed to complete the program.  This additional tuition will be at a lower rate than standard.

For more information on fees, please view the Fees page in the Stanford Bulletin.
