Estimated Cost of Graduate Studies
Based on Tuition & Fees for SY 2013-2014
Actual costs may be more or less than the figures given below; please note that tuition and fees increase by about 5% yearly.

Master's Programs 

Students who enroll for coursework or other requirements (comprehensives, thesis oral defense, etc.) have to pay miscellaneous fees ranging from P1,330 to P1,710, covering registration, internet and development fees.

The cost of coursework is about P8,385 for every 3-unit subject, excluding laboratory and seminar fees. Add to this a library fee computed at P467 per unit.

A student who will enroll for the comprehensive exams alone pays P2,900.

For the thesis work, the first enrollment in Thesis Direction costs about P14,500. The second enrollment with oral defense, binding fee, and graduation and diploma fees is about P20,000. These amounts exclude laboratory fees and thesis reproduction costs.  Thus 2 semesters of Thesis Direction cost about P34,500 (plus laboratory fees, if any, and binding fees for the thesis copies).

For students in the non-thesis program, rates for the final project, paper, research, practicum, etc., vary from program to program.  The rate for a 3-unit course or thesis direction may apply. Students may also be required to enroll for oral defense before a panel. 

Doctoral Programs

The cost of coursework is equivalent to that for master’s students. (See above.)

A student who will enroll for the comprehensive exams alone pays P3,400.

For dissertation work, the first enrollment in Dissertation Direction costs about P15,500. The second enrollment with oral defense, binding fee, and graduation and diploma fees is about P24,000. This excludes laboratory fees and dissertation reproduction costs. Thus 2 semesters of Dissertation Direction cost about P39,500 (plus laboratory fees, if any, and binding fees for the dissertation copies).

For Loyola Schools Filipino master’s students who are teachers or academicians who qualify for the 50% tuition scholarship, deduct P4,191.60 for every 3-unit subject, except for  the MA Journalism on-line and hybrid subjects. The estimated tuition fee for 3 units is P7,079.60.

Fees for Journalism
