The CSEE program tuition is $6,000 for the entire year. Competitive and need-based scholarships are available to cover up to but no greater than 1/2 the costs of the program tuition. Applications for need-based scholarships are reviewed and approved by the program director and can be requested on the program application. Scholarship applications are competitive so early submission is recommended.

Tuition is typically due in one lump sum, but we work with organizations to meet their particular budget and funding cycles. Tuition includes all program fees, executive coaching, materials, books, campus parking, breakfasts, lunches and snacks while on campus, a mounted Certificate of Completion from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville’s Haslam College of Business, and a graduation celebration for you and your invited friends and family. (Tuition does not cover student travel costs or room and board.)

  • NOTE:

    Competitive and need-based scholarships are available to cover up to half the tuition costs. Scholarship requests are reviewed on a case by case basis by the program director, Dr. Alex Miller. The scholarships are competitive, so early submission is recommended. If you wish to apply for a scholarship to the program, please complete section #6.

    Successful completion of the CSEE program requires your commitment to attend all scheduled class sessions and complete all assignments on time. Unforseen emergencies do happen, and for this reason, students are allowed to mess 1/2 day during the 10 month program. Classes are videotaped for these purposes. If a student misses more than the allowed 1/2 day, they must then attend the missed portions of the residency period(s) with the next year's class in order to earn the course certificate. By checking the box below demonstrates my understanding of and commitment to the CSEE attendance policy.
