Tuition, Fees, and Refunds

Tuition cost for the Master of Education with ESL/Bilingual Endorsement is established each year as a package price that includes educational materials needed for all courses.

*Tuition may be spread out over the course of the program through a Tuition Deferment Plan (TDP) that can be set up with the Student Accounts office at Judson University. A typical plan for the complete program would consist of an initial payment of $1,415.00 (which includes the TDP fee of $240.00) due two weeks before the beginning of the program. A payment of $1375.00 is then due the 15th of every month for 11 months. You may contact the Student Accounts office by calling 847-628-2053 to set up this plan.

*For those graduate students who receive tuition reimbursement, an Employer Tuition Reimbursement Plan (ETRP) may be customized based upon the specific parameters of their district's tuition reimbursement program. An additional fee is required for this plan. Specifics may be discussed with the Student Accounts office by calling 847-628-2053.
