Grad Student Tuition Calculator

While every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of this Calculator, please keep in mind that this estimate does not represent a final determination or actual award of financial assistance, graduate assistantships, fellowship, or financial award. It shall not be binding on the Secretary of Education, the Board of Supervisors of Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College, or the State, and may change without advance notice. 

There are several notes to bring to your attention:

  • The LSU Board of Supervisors may modify tuition and/or fees at any time without advance notice as permitted by law.
  • Professional Program Fees are NOT included in the Calculator.  Students enrolled in the Digital Media Arts & Engineering (DMAE) and the full-time MBA programs will be assessed a program fee in addition to the tuition and fees above. The amount of these Program Fees are listed on the LSU Budget & Planning website.
  • There are other fees, not included in the above "Student Dedicated Fees", which are mandatory for certain students, e.g., students whose citizenship is other than the United States pay the International Cultural Center Fee, and international students who hold F-1 and J-1 student visa status pay the International Students Status Compliance service charge; Graduating students pay the Diploma Fee; graduate students and doctoral students whose particular course involves electronic submission also pay the Electronic Submission Fee. The amount of those fees are listed on the LSU Budget & Planning website.
