The AFFORDABILITY ranking is shown for all psychology schools using a money symbol ranging from one $ to five $$$$$, giving students a general idea of the cost differences of each school. Data is used from the Institute of Education Sciences NCES College Navigator and is based on the average graduate student tuition and fees for the academic year. Exact numbers are not used because tuition prices sometimes fluctuate, even annually. We do not rank schools based on exam pass rates or program popularity.
