How to Pay for a Master’s in Computer Science

Federal Financial Aid

Many of our graduate students, both online and on campus, take advantage of financial aid to help cover the cost of returning to school. At the graduate level, there are two forms of federal financial aid for students taking six or more credits: lower-interest Direct Unsubsidized Loans and Graduate PLUS Loans. Federal financial aid eligibility is determined based on your completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Visit the School of Science and Engineering graduate student financial aid page for information on deadlines, types of aid, and an aid application checklist.

Employer Tuition Assistance

At Tulane, the flexibility of our online Master of Science in Computer Science program offers you the ability to earn while you learn. Since you progress through the MSCS program at your own pace, you have the option to continue working full time while you complete your degree. This means that you can bring classroom takeaways directly to the workplace, which is an added benefit to your employer.

Because of this, many of our computer science students take advantage of some form of employer tuition assistance. Unsure if your company has an official tuition assistance or reimbursement policy? Connect with our enrollment team for resources and guidance on starting the employer sponsorship conversation with your manager or HR representative today.
