MDE Tuition and Fees

2021-2022 Estimated Total Cost of Attendance for the MDE Program

Listed below are the estimated costs (USD) for the first year of the program. The University applies a conservative and modest estimate of indirect expenses, based on average costs. Direct costs include tuition, university fees, and health insurance. Indirect costs include books and supplies, transportation, and personal expenses.

Projected increases in tuition are determined by the Board of Trustees of Columbia University in June, therefore, for planning purposes, a three percent increase should be anticipated each year.
