Program Costs

Marshall President Brad D. Smith is known to say, “We will grow students, not fees.” Although some increases are inevitable, Marshall University and the Counseling Department prioritizes access and value in the educational experience. The total cost for the degree depends on several factors including the number of credits taken per term, number of terms enrolled, scholarships, grants, and changes to Marshall University tuition and fees.
