Enrollment in the Physician Assistant program represents a substantial commitment, both academically and financially. To enable students to better understand the extent of that commitment, we have prepared an estimate of the cost to complete the program; note that the estimate does not include students' personal and living expenses. The tuition and fee estimates are based on tuition for the 2014-15 academic year, and students should expect an increase of approximately 5 percent each year.
The total estimated cost for the entire program is $106,033 for three years.
Graduate Scholarships are offered by the University to students on the basis of their undergraduate grade point average. The Graduate Admission Office will evaluate each student's eligibility upon application for admission; there is no separate scholarship application. Award values range from $2,400 to $5,100 per semester.
Private Scholarships are often available from private corporations and foundations. Students are encouraged to explore additional scholarship opportunities via our searchable database or via Internet search engines such as www.fastweb.com.
These are available to all students who complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), have no prior defaults on federal student loans, and have not exceeded lifetime borrowing limits.
Students may borrow up to $20,500 per academic year. To learn more about repayment terms and interest rates on Unsubsidized Stafford Loans, please visit this page.
