Tuition and Fees
The PsyD in Clinical Psychology program requires 98 credits (plus internship) to meet graduation requirements. The cost per credit hour is $1,162 X 98 credits for a total of $113,876. The 1-year internship tuition cost is $3,486. Therefore, the estimated total tuition for the PsyD program (including internship) is $117,362.
PsyD fees include a $40 materials fee for PRP 742 Objective Personality Assessment, and a $14 fee per semester for Assessment training throughout the program.
There is a $50 PsyD fee for comps administration, assessed in the year the student takes comps.
Other costs vary. Augsburg University estimates the cost of books and supplies for full-time students to be approximately $300 per semester. Actual costs per semester for PsyD students may vary; costs are likely to be higher than $300 per semester in the first two years of the program, and lower in the last two years.
Augsburg University estimates the cost of room and board for full-time students as $9,666 per semester. PsyD students generally do not live on campus, and your actual costs for room and board may therefore vary.
