MSIE tuition & funding
Tuition rates change annually and vary based on Washington state residency status and the number of credits for which you are registered. The Master of Science in Industrial Engineering is a Tier III graduate program. Full-time students (those registered for between 7 and 18 credits) pay uniform tuition rates based on residency.
International students who wish to study on a visa must be prepared to provide evidence of adequate financial support when applying to the MSIE program. Learn about the Financial Ability Requirement prior to applying to the graduate school.
Graduate Tier III tuition rates
- Washington state resident quarterly tuition and fees for full-time students: $6,284
- Nonresident quarterly tuition and fees for full-time students: $10,920

Assistantships and fellowships
Limited financial assistance is available for full-time, regular status students through teaching assistantships (TA), research assistantships (RA), and fellowships. Financial assistance is offered on a highly competitive basis to those applicants with the very best records.
ISE automatically considers all applicants for funding whose application materials are received by the January 2 deadline. Most offers of support are extended to Ph.D. applicants. It is rare for an MSIE student to be offered funding.
Financial offers for autumn quarter applicants are made in April. Typically, 90% of the financial aid available for new students is offered and accepted by late May. Students who wish to enter in the winter, spring, or summer quarters should note that the availability of aid for new students for these quarters is limited.
Students are encouraged to seek outside sources of support, including fellowships from the National Science Foundation, other federal agencies and laboratories, private foundations, and foreign governments.
