Course Tuition & Fees


The estimated total cost for all six courses and the capstone required to earn the credential is $6,470 (for enrollment after January 1, 2021).

For Spring 2021 (beginning January 1, 2021):

  • Course fee: $995
  • Capstone fee: $500

For those who wish to apply to the Mid-Career Master in Public Administration (MC/MPA) after completing the Public Leadership Credential, the total tuition cost for the MC/MPA Program will be less than it is in the traditional path. Master's program tuition and fees for the 2022-23 academic year will be established in March 2022. At this time, we are unable to provide a specific cost comparison for those who earn the credential in June 2021 and pursue the pathway to the MC/MPA Program for the 2022-23 academic year. 

All Harvard Kennedy School tuition and fees are subject to change without notice.
