Tuition Details

The per credit rate is $1,665. *Students who pay full-time tuition are entitled to take between twelve (12) and sixteen (16) credits in a given semester. Students who wish to take more credits may either:

  1. Pay for the additional credit at the current full per credit rate, or
  2. Defer the overload credits to a subsequent semester in which they pay full-time tuition and take fewer than sixteen (16) credits.

Students who defer overload charges without an equivalent underload in a subsequent semester will be required to pay the current full per credit rate for the overload credits remaining when they register for their final semester.

Students who take 10 or fewer credits per semester will be charged at the per credit rate (students taking 11 or more credits will be charged the comprehensive fee).

Other Expenses

Personal Expenses

This student budget does not include all expenses such as credit card or other consumer debt and living expenses for a spouse and/or dependents. The category of personal expenses includes clothing, laundry, household supplies, and entertainment. You should prepare a personal budget to anticipate your financial needs.

Health Insurance

Our students must have health insurance. You must enroll in the Monterey Institute's health insurance program or provide proof of alternative coverage.

Student Tuition Recovery Fund

California law requires that upon enrollment a fee be assessed relative to the cost of tuition (Education Code Section 94342). These fees support the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF), a special fund established by the California Legislature to reimburse students who might otherwise experience a financial loss as a result of untimely school closure. Institutional participation is mandatory.

Students must pay the state-imposed fee for the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) if all the following apply:

  1. You are a new student who pays all or part of your tuition, and
  2. Your total charges are not paid by any third party payer such as an employer, government program or other payer unless you have a separate agreement to repay the third party.

You are not eligible for protection from the STRF and you are not required to pay the STRF fee if your total charges are paid by a third party, such as an employer, government program, or other payer and you have no separate agreement to repay the third party.

**STRF fees are $2.50 per $1,000 of tuition.**
