Tuition and Financial Assistance

Tuition is $1134 per course. Fees are due and payable at the time of registration. Financial Assistance is available through the Financial Aid Office of San José State University and through fellowships offered by the Mineta Transportation Institute. Employee development programs at some agencies may reimburse employees for career-related educational expenses. Your agency's training coordinator should be able to provide this information. For reference, our Federal School Code is 001155.

Mineta Transportation Institute Fellowships

Financial assistance from the Mineta Transportation Institute can make the MSTM or Certificate programs very affordable, especially when paired with tuition support from your agency. 


Applicants for the Certificate fellowship must be enrolled in the Certificate in Transportation Management program at San José State University, be registered for the current class, and must have been registered in the previous session.

Applicants for the Master of Science in Transportation Management fellowship must be enrolled in the MSTM program at SJSU, must be registered for the current class, and must have been registered in the previous session. 

Both awards are based on scholastic achievement, leadership, instructor and faculty recommendations, and a short essay of 250-500 words. While financial need and GPA are factors, preference is given to students who attend classes continuously and whointend to complete the program at the accelerated pace.
