Students must take 11 courses to complete the MA Leadership program. See current tuition cost per credit.
Financial assistance is available to degree-seeking students enrolled from half to full time in the MAL program. Two full-credit courses per term is considered full time and one course per term is considered half time.
You may be eligible for financial aid including state and federal loans or grants. If your employer provides tuition assistance, you can participate in Augsburg’s employer tuition reimbursement program.
One way to reduce costs is to transfer related graduate courses taken at another institution. Students may petition the MAL program director for transfer credit to apply to program requirements. Transfer credits will be evaluated on an individual basis. Students must provide appropriate documentation, including but not limited to an official transcript, course description, and syllabus. In order to be considered for transfer, a course must be from a regionally-accredited college or university institution and graded 3.0/B or better. Courses must be graduate level, and course content must be comparable to program requirements and content to the MAL in Leadership. Typically, no more than six graduate level semester credits can be applied to the program.
We also offer some scholarships and tuition discounts (one discount per student) which may be available to you, including the following:
