A Muhlenberg graduate program offers significant benefits for students.

  • Textbooks for all courses are included as part of the tuition.
  • The following fees are also included in the tuition: technology, laboratory, library, career center, orientation, commencement, parking permits, graduate student activities, and unofficial transcripts.
