The cost of participating in the MA in Communication program is very competitive when compared to other graduate programs across the West. Full time Idaho resident graduate fees for attending the program are $8,702 a year (or $17,404 for two years).  Full time non-resident students add $14,450 in non-resident tuition a year (or $28,900 for two years). However, the GEM Scholarship waives non-resident tuition for out-of-state and international graduate students with an overall GPA of at least 3.00 who are accepted into the M.A. in Communication program. The GEM scholarship amounts to a $28,900 scholarship over two years.
