Approximately $9,400 per year pre-americorps award (learn more HERE)

The above cost represents your estimated out-of-pocket yearly tuition pre-AmeriCorps full-time award. If you are eligible for the full-time AmeriCorps award you will be able to apply that towards your tuition to significantly reduce the out of pocket cost to $3,400 per year. For example, if you receive the AmeriCorps full-time award for 2019-20 you can expect to pay $3,400 per year for tuition (after the AmeriCorps award amount is applied).
