School of Recreation, Health, and Tourism - George Mason University

The School of Recreation, Health, and Tourism (SRHT) offers exciting, career-ready majors in dynamic fields such as athletic training, tourism and events management, health and physical education, kinesiology, sport management, and recreation management. SRHT features renowned faculty, cutting-edge research, six laboratories and centers, and a diverse student body of more than 1,000 undergraduate and graduate students each year. Each major requires one or more internship or clinical experiences, ensuring that students graduate not just with a transcript but with a resume that demonstrates their professional aptitude and skills.

The Tuition Discount for CEHD Out-of-State Students is available to out-of-state students enrolled in the College of Education and Human Development.

The discount is approximately 40% off the university’s approved rate for out-of-state graduate students (please see for current rate information).

The discount is automatically applied to graduate-level, for-credit, and full-fee courses once an out-of-state student has been accepted into a CEHD graduate program (i.e., master's, PhD, certificate, or non-degree graduate program) and registers for CEHD courses.

Please note:

  1. The 15% Tuition Discount for Virginia Educators cannot be applied to the already discounted out-of-state tuition.
  2. The out-of-state tuition discount is not available to students who take CEHD courses but are primarily enrolled in a program offered by another college at the university.
  3. The out-of-state tuition discount cannot be applied to non-credit-bearing courses or already discounted "contract" courses. (Contract courses are those offered to teachers and other educators through arrangements made between a qualifying organization and George Mason University).
