Tuition, Fees, and Estimated Costs

Fisher has crunched the numbers, and offers you a breakdown of the costs associated with earning your graduate degree.

Academics and reputation aren’t the only factors that go into choosing a graduate school. That’s why the College is committed to putting the cost of obtaining an advanced degree in reach of every prospective graduate student.


Due to the wide ranging impacts of COVID-19, St. John Fisher College will keep the 2020-2021 cost of attendance at the same rate as the 2019-2020 cost for all of our students. We made this decision as we make all of our decisions - with your best interests in mind and with our continued commitment to affordability at the center of our mission. We hope that this will be of assistance to you in an otherwise uncertain time.
