Beginning the Program

You may only start the program at the beginning of each school year. Our classes are sequential and are usually only offered once per program sequence so students must begin coursework Fall quarter. Additionally, our program is designed to foster supportive cohorts of students and we have found that this is best achieved by students starting and ending the program together.

Program Cost

For the 2020-2021 school year, the cost of the program is $589/credit. Tuition rates are set in the spring, but we are expecting that costs will be close to this for the 2021-2022 school year.

Diversity Scholarships

The University of Washington ABA Program values diversity and equity both within our program and within the broader field of Applied Behavior Analysis.  To demonstrate our commitment to this value, we provide scholarship opportunities to incoming graduate students focused on increasing diversity. Scholarship preference is given to students from underrepresented racial/ethnic communities. Selection is based on both admissions materials and a personal written essay. We will have two awards of up to $8,000 each. Students will be invited to apply for these scholarships after they have been admitted to the program. 

Other Scholarship Opportunities 

The University of Washington Online ABA Program also offers general scholarships based on academic merit and financial need. We will have three awards of up to $8,000 each. All students will be invited to apply for these scholarships after they have been admitted to the program. 

The University of Washington College of Education also offers some scholarships to College of Education students; find information about them here.

Financial Aid

Federal financial aid is available for students enrolled as Master’s Degree candidates who need assistance with tuition and fees.
