Tuition rates are the same for students who live in the United States as it is for those who live outside of the United States.

There are scholarship programs at Fielding for incoming and returning students that will provide some financial support. For example, in 2021 there were 42 scholarship programs available to students with a range of awards between $500 - $12,970 and an average award of about $1,500. However, there are no scholarships to fully fund students at Fielding at this time.
