Paying for Courses


​Partial tuition scholarships are available on a competitive basis. Request consideration for a scholarship award by answering yes to the question, “Do you wish to be considered for a Teaching Assistantship, Research Assistantship or Fellowship if your program offers them?” in the Funding section of the application.  Scholarship applications are reviewed by a subcommittee of the MALS Faculty Advisory Committee. 

To be considered, you must submit your application at least one month before the application deadline for any given semester.

Tuition Free for Delawareans over 60

You qualify for the Over 60 Tuition Program if you are a Delaware resident, and are matriculated as a degree candidate. Details may be found at  Simply apply for the MALS program as usual and the waiver will automatically take effect. If you are a Delawarean over 60, the application fee is waived as well.
