Costs and Funding
Costs for LTS 2021-2022
The first Summer 2021 term of the LTS program will be delivered online. All students will need to be on the UO campus starting in the Fall 2021 term. Learn more.
Oregon Resident Graduate Student: $25,760 (includes all 5 terms)
Non-Oregon Resident Graduate Student: $40,937 (includes all 5 terms)
This tuition estimate is for the entire LTS 5-term intensive program (12 credits in the first Summer term, 39 credits Fall-Spring, and 9 credits in the second Summer term), and is based on current Summer 2021 and 2021-22 academic year tuition information. Tuition is set by the University of Oregon and may change from year to year. The most direct way to calculate costs is on the Registrar’s page here.
Funding opportunities for LTS students:
Because the LTS program is short, intensive, and focuses on professional preparation, opportunities to be fully funded are competitive. This is particularly true during the current pandemic.
