Tuition and Fee Information

Current academic year tuition and fee rates can be found here:

Please note that in addition to tuition, students are charged enrollment fees (also known as mandatory fees).


Funding is extremely competitive, and most applicants will not be awarded an assistantship, fellowship, or scholarship. All prospective applicants should explore options outside of funding from the Public Policy program to finance their education.

International students are not eligible for financial aid or most university-provided funding and are strongly encouraged to contact the MPP program before applying.


The Public Policy program offers few GA positions. For those students who wish to be considered for a Graduate Assistantship, which comes with tuition, fees, health insurance option, and a monthly stipend, the application deadline is MARCH 1 for Fall Quarter admission. Only full-time Corvallis-based students are eligible for Graduate Assistantships. In your application to the program, you will be asked whether you would like to be considered for a GA; by checking yes, you have effectively applied for GA funding.

Students interested in and eligible for the Prestigious Diversity Fellowship must have their application to the Master of or PhD in Public Policy program submitted by January 31 for Fall Quarter admission. There is no guarantee that all students will be nominated for the fellowship.
