We have a dedicated financial aid specialist within our college to assist prospective and current students on various options to finance your DBA degree. Students pursuing a DBA degree at Florida International University may apply for financial aid even before they are admitted into the program, this way you can ensure that your financial aid application is complete by the time you are admitted and a financial aid package is processed prior to the start of classes. To learn more please visit the Financial Aid page. Scholarships, assistantships, and fellowships are not available for the DBA program.

*A $200 non-refundable deposit and a $1,500 Professional Development Seminar fee is required at time of admission. Both fees will be credited towards your tuition and fees in the first semester.

Under the revised Florida Board of Governors’ (BOG) Regulation 8.002, all institutions of the State University System (SUS) of Florida are required to provide students with a side-by-side Tuition and Fees comparison for continuing education programs. The tuition comparisons are made between a traditional program vs. its counterpart Market Rate/Self-Supporting program. This approach provides students an opportunity to become aware of options that are available upon selecting a degree program of study.
