We are proud of our transparent and straightforward tuition & fee structure. Tuition billing is flexible and easy to budget. You are only billed at the start of a quarter for the classes you are taking in that quarter. You will never be asked to pay for your whole program up front.

To maintain this transparency, we also offer tuition guarantees. When you are accepted into a program, FSIHS guarantees your tuition rate for as long as you remain enrolled with us. This means that any tuition increases that may occur while you are a student will not apply to you. This guarantee is valid for as long as you remain in the student agreement.

There is no registration or graduation fee for the DipDSS. The program consists of 5 blocks of classes, each containing one 50-contact concentration class and two 30-contact hour core classes. A full time student completes one block per academic quarter (3 calendar months), and a part time student completes (and is billed for) 1/2 a block per academic quarter. Tuition is $1,155 per block of classes.

For the Graduate Certificate program, there is a $135 registration fee due with your enrollment agreement and a $65 graduation fee due at the start of your final quarter. Tuition is paid per class and is $840 for each of the four required 45 contact hour classes.
