Distance Tuition and Financial Aid

Tuition

Program tuition for the 2017-2018 academic year is $6,561 per course taken at the university. Students generally take two courses per semester over four semesters, though we offer flexibility to those who want to extend the program.

In general, completion of the eight required program courses would result in a total tuition cost of $52,488. Please note that course credits earned through the internship requirement do not incur tuition charges.

Financial Aid

Because the Master of Engineering Management Program is a professional degree rather than a research degree, most students pay their own tuition costs. d-MEMP students should consider the following options.

Loans

Many students take out loans and feel there will be an excellent "return on investment" when they get out into the work force.

US citizens and eligible non-citizens are able to borrow through the Federal Stafford Loan Program. Applicants for assistance through this program must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which may be completed online at fafsa.ed.gov. When completing the online form, students will be asked for Duke’s school code; it is 002920.

Maximum eligibility under the Stafford Unsubsidized Loan Program is $20,500 per year. For further information on the FAFSA and the Stafford Loan Program, please call 1-800-433-3243.

International applicants are not eligible for Federal loans; however, many international students take out loans in their home countries, and some US banks may offer loans to international students for study in the US.

Duke University maintains information on lenders for citizens, permanent residents, and non-US citizens - see this information here.
