* The Professional Degree Supplemental Tuition (PDST) is assessed to students enrolled in designated graduate professional degree programs, such as the Master of Public Policy program, in order to achieve and maintain excellence in the preparation of students for professional careers. The revenue effectively is used to advance the mission and strategic academic plan of the graduate professional degree program charging a PDST. Currently, 33% of revenue collected from PDST is used as return to aid. The remaining revenue is used to enhance student services for MPP students as well as fund career counseling and internship coordination efforts.
