In the 2021-22 school year, full-time tuition for students in the Graduate School of Architecture & Urban Design at Washington University in St. Louis is $27,793 per semester. The cost of tuition plus living expenses brings fall and spring semester expenses (i.e., a 9-month period) to an estimated total of $82,616.
WashU student health insurance costs $1,942 per year (July 1, 2021, through June 20, 2022). Please note: U.S. students (U.S. citizens and permanent residents) may waive student health insurance if they have health insurance through another provider, plan, organization, or family member. All international students are required to participate in the basic student health plan on a mandatory basis unless there is proof of U.S. insurance through a U.S. employer via an employed parent or spouse. Please visit the Student Health Services website for full details about health insurance plans and waivers.
There is an additional $100 student activity fee and a $538 student health and wellness fee. Students in the Master of Urban Design program typically pay an additional $5,000 in fees to cover the costs of travel during the program when travel is permitted; read the MUD Travel Fees document for further details.
All charges are split between fall and spring semesters except student health insurance, which is billed in the fall semester. Tuition and fees for each semester are payable approximately two weeks before the first day of classes. The University reserves the right to change the fees stated or to establish additional fees at any time without prior written notice. When fee changes or additions are made, they become effective with the next payment due.
