Tuition and Financial Aid

Tuition and fees for MTSU graduate students vary depending on where you live and whether you take all courses online or a combination of online and on-ground or hybrid classes. Note that some electives for the Health Care Management and Music Management concentrations are only available on campus. Rates are adjusted each school year, so the costs below are approximate.

Tennessee residents qualify for in-state tuition. Out-of-state students who take ONLY online courses will be charged the eRate. Non-Tennessee residents who take a combination of online and on-campus courses can qualify for reduced online tuition under the Regional Scholars Program if they:

  • Live within approximately 250 miles of the MTSU campus or anywhere within the eight states bordering Tennessee (Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, and Virginia)
  • Are U.S. citizens or permanent residents
  • Maintain good academic standing

Interviewers were impressed with my ‘polished and professional’ presentation—even more than my project management skills. Jones College’s M.B.A. program was integral to my soft skill development and one of the best investments I ever made.
