Joint degree students pay a blended tuition rate for the joint program, which is shared by both schools. Students who apply and are new admits to both schools for the same academic year will pay the blended tuition rate from the start of the joint degree program. Applicants who are already a student at one school and at a later time decide to apply to the other school as a joint degree student will have a tuition adjustment applied over two semesters of their joint degree program.

Estimated Cost of Attendance for joint degree programs for the 2017-2018 academic year are:

Blended Tuition Rate 62,750 60,770 52,333 55,605
Estimated Fees 6,627 6,627 6,627 6,727
Estimated Course Materials 1,350 1,350 1,350 1,350
Estimated Living Expenses 18,596 18,596 18,596 18,596
Estimated Total Costs (USD) 89,323 87,343 78,906 82,278


Typically, student loans are initially processed at the school where the student begins their course of study. A Fuqua joint degree student is expected to enroll at the other school in their first year of the joint degree program.  Therefore, that school will process the student loan for the first year. Fuqua will then process the student loan in the year that the student is enrolled at Fuqua, which is usually the second year of the joint degree program.  (Please note that there are exceptions for the JD/MBA and MD/MBA programs.)

Each school makes scholarship decisions independently. Fuqua scholarship awards will be applied in all joint degree academic years that have a blended tuition rate charge.
