Tuition & Fees

MDIV and MASC Tuition
Starr King charges an all-inclusive, total-degree Tuition for each degree program, set by the academic year that a student matriculates.

For students matriculating in the 2014-2015 academic year:

All-inclusive tuition for the MDIV degree (3 years of full time study): $60,174

All-inclusive tuition for the MASC degree (2 years of full time study): $40,116

All-inclusive tuition for the joint MDIV/MASC Degree Tuition (4 years of full time
study):   $80,232

Note: Part-time study is possible in all degree programs.  All-inclusive tuition remains the same regardless of full-time or part-time study but is prorated over a longer period of time for students studying part-time.   

Personalized Payment Plans
A pro-rated portion of Tuition is due by the first day of classes for each principal term (Fall and Spring Semesters) and total degree Tuition must be paid in full 30 days prior graduation.

Each student is required to set up and adhere to a Personalized Payment Plan arranged with the Student Accounts Manager (Anita Narang, anarang@sksm.edu) based on the student’s projected graduation date.  A student’s projected graduation date is determined in close consultation with their advisor, with whom the student charts their “Personalized Educational Plan.”

Minimum Credits for Student Health Insurance Program (SHIP) and Student Loans
For purposes of federally-supported financial aid programs, to receive full-time benefits a students must be enrolled for a minimum of 9 credits each principal term (i.e. Fall and/or Spring).  To receive part-time benefits, a student must be enrolled for a minimum of 6 credits each principal term (i.e. Fall and/or Spring). Federal regulations do not allow us to count Summer (June Intensives, August Intensives, and Symposium) and Intersession (Winter/January Intensives) in determining eligibility for federally-supported financial aid programs (student loans and work study).  Students who take fewer than 6 credits in a principal term may enter repayment for loans and are not eligible for loans within that semester.

Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) purchased from Starr King School is not available to anyone taking fewer than 6 credits in a principal term.

Common M.A. Tuition
The Common M.A. is a joint Starr King and Graduate Theological Union degree.  M.A. tuition is set annually by the GTU and is posted at gtu.edu.  M.A. tuition may increase during a student’s course of study.

M.A. Tuition is due by the first day of classes for each semester and must be paid in full 30 days prior graduation. 

For further details on all fees, MA students should refer to their own student handbook. http://www.gtu.edu/students/handbooks.

M.A. tuition for full-time students entering fall 2014: $670 per credit / $16,080 full (12 credits per semester). Students pay tuition for the first two years of residence (full-time status means at least 12 credits per semester).
