Tuition & Financing

Invest in a high-quality education at an affordable value.

Georgia Tech's QCF tuition is among the lowest when compared with peer programs, particularly when factoring in the reasonable cost of living in Atlanta.

Tuition Cost per Semester (Full-time Enrollment) for Academic Year 2017-2018
Georgia Resident Tuition
$8,655
Non-Georgia Resident Tuition
$19,037
Mandatory Student Fees
$1,005

Note: The tuition and fees listed above are for academic year 2017-2018 and are subject to change after any term. With full-time enrollment, the average student completes the QCF program in 3 semesters.

As many as one third of QCF students will receive some opportunity to earn funding to help support the cost of their education. To be considered for funding for the fall semester, all applicants must have a completed application (including test scores and recommendation letters) in by the Standard deadline, with priority given to those that have submitted an application by the Early Decision deadline of October 15. To be considered for funding for the spring semester, a completed application must be received by the posted deadline of September 1.

Graduate Assistantships

The QCF program will award Graduate Assistantships to a select number of students each year. These awards are merit-based and offered to those applicants with the strongest applications or current students that have proven academic success thus far in their time in the program.

There are two types of Graduate Assistantship opportunities:
• Graduate Teaching Assistantship (GTA) - Recipients receive a waiver for a portion of tuition and a monthly salary in exchange for a work commitment of up to 14 hours/week. Students are assigned a faculty supervisor to oversee their assignments.

• Graduate Assistantship (GA) - Recipients receive a monthly salary in exchange for a work commitment of up to 20 hours/week. Students are assigned to a faculty member or program administration to oversee their assignments.
Graders
Some students will be hired as graders to support QCF faculty. Graders are paid an hourly salary in exchange for a work commitment of up to 20 hours/week.
