Enrollment and Costs

Whether you want to comple the Certificate or just learn a particular skill, all are welcome to enroll in our online classes. No application is required. Students may work toward the Certificate of Journalism, but they are also welcome to sign up for only a single class.

Students may register for courses up until the course starts, but we strongly suggest you enroll at least two weeks before the class starts because many classes fill up quickly. Enrollment for the second summer session from July 7 to August 15 is now underway.

University of Massachusetts Amherst students can also enroll in online classes. Journalism majors will earn credit towards their UMass Journalism degree by passing online classes.

The fee per credit is $380. There is an additional non-refundable registration fee of $45 per term. The registration fee is paid only once each term, regardless of how many courses a student enrolls in. The total cost for a 3-credit course is $1,185.
