There is an initial application fee of $50 which is to be submitted with your application. After you are accepted into the program, there is a non-refundable deposit of $300 for enrollment, which will be applied toward the tuition and fees. Please note you will not be able to use financial aid or student loan money to pay this deposit as the financial aid and student loan money does not fund until just a few days prior to the program start date.

The tuition for the one-year program (effective July 1, 2023- June 30, 2024) is $50,400. Tuition includes the following benefits:

  • 22 days of professional Esri instructor-led training;
  • A large selection of books from Esri Press;
  • Unlimited access to Esri Virtual Campus courses during the program;
  • Upon completion of the program, you will receive a copy of the current version of ArcGIS Desktop Basic, as a graduation gift from Jack Dangermond.
Technology Fees

The technology fees cover the cost of a high-end personal laptop and a wide range of software. A one-time of $2300 laptop fee is due when you commence the program. Students will keep the laptop after graduation. In addition, the one-year students are charged with $500 per semester for software maintenance and two-year students with $330 per semester. 

In addition to the direct costs identified above, the University estimates a number of indirect costs a student may incur while completing their degree program. The combination of direct and indirect costs creates the student’s cost of attendance, which is used to determine the students financial need and set the maximum amount of financial aid a student can receive for a period of enrollment. Indirect costs include:

  • Personal expenses
  • Transportation expenses
  • Housing and food expenses
  • Books and supplies
  • Federal Direct Loan Fees

A breakdown of your total cost of attendance can be found on your financial aid offer letter in Self-Service Financial Aid.
