Tuition and Fees

The Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina charges a program fee instead of tuition. The MAEcon program assesses the program fee at a per-credit hour rate, with South Carolina residents and non-residents paying different rates. The program fee information is outlined in general below.

Don't forget to visit our Financing Your Degree section to learn more about ways to reduce the cost of our MAEcon program through merit-based scholarships and graduate assistant positions. We have many awards that reduce the cost of our program for non-South Carolina residents to the South Carolina resident rate.
