MSFS Financial Aid and Tuition Costs

The Department of Criminal Justice does offer assistantships and small scholarships to MSFS students. No separate application for these merit-based awards is needed. We assume all applicants are interested in funding and will contact those who are most qualified to receive some form of department aid. Other financial resources may be available through the Office of Student Financial Aid and the UAB Graduate School.

For a complete list of tuition costs and fees, visit the tuition and fees section of the UAB Students website. Note that most of the student service fees are now incorporated into the first hour of coursework each semester.

For applicants from the southeastern US, the Academic Common Market is an interstate agreement among selected southern states for sharing academic programs at both the baccalaureate and graduate levels. Participating states are Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia. Residents of these states may qualify to pay in-state tuition. For more information, visit the market website.
