MAT Tuition and Program Fees

Nebraska Wesleyan undergraduate students pursuing a bachelor’s degree and a Master of Athletic Training (3+2 program) are charged the traditional student tuition rate over four years. All scholarships and eligibility for financial aid apply, including the senior year in which students begin taking graduate courses.

In the fifth year of the MAT program, NWU students are charged the graduate tuition rate. MAT scholarships up to $2,000 are available. Students should submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be eligible for, and receive, additional financial aid resources.

Students with a bachelor’s degree in a relevant field, may enroll in the two-year MAT program and will be charged the graduate tuition rate.

Graduate courses are billed per credit hour. The following example shows estimated annual costs. Each student’s exact costs will vary.

Estimates based on 6 credit hours per semester; 12 credit hours for the academic year.

Estimated indirect expenses are not billed by NWU, but are included as part of the cost of attendance used to determine financial aid eligibility. Financial aid may be used to help cover indirect expenses.

Scholarship will reduce the cost of tuition. See your admission counselor or contact the NWU financial aid office for a personal cost estimate.
