Program Fees

EdD Program Fees

Estimated Program Costs:

  • The Cal State APPLY application fee is currently $70.00  
  • Tuition for the Ed.D. Program is $6,447.26 per semester with 3 semesters a year (Fall, Spring and Summer) with a total per year of $19,341.78

  • Program fees are based on a year-round program and includes the cost of summer session.  Students pay the same base fees charged for University of California doctoral programs (some UC programs add extra fees, we do not). Cal State LA is a pre-pay campus. Fees are collected prior to the fall, spring and summer semesters. Tuition fees must be paid until you finish your program.

  • Non-residents are subjected to extra fees per unit

*2021-2022 tuition should hold steady but  an increase could be assigned based on UC and CSU Trustees decisions.


Financial Aid:

The traditional student loans are available for Ed.D. students through the Cal State LA's Financial Aid Office.  Financial Aid set aside funds are available as additional need-based support for students.  For students who pay out of pocket, Cal State LA provides an option for a payment plan. Financial Aid is distributed during the  Fall and Spring semesters (Summer aid is not available but can be reserved from Fall and Spring disbursements).  Travel money is available for conference attendance.  Other student support for research expenses becomes available at the dissertation stage.
