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.

Note: The tuition and fees listed above are for academic year 2020-2021 and are subject to change after any term. With full-time enrollment, the average student completes the QCF program in 3 semesters.

On average, at least 50%-60% of QCF students will typically receive some opportunity to earn funding to help support the cost of their education. The following are some of the funding opportunities offered to students (with assistantships typically awarded to students in the 2nd/3rd semesters of the program).

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.
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.
