Academic Year Tuition
Providing a quality education while also keeping student costs affordable is a priority for our pre-professional health program. We strive to offer tuition that is lower than most academic institutions that offer a pre-medical or pre-health education.
Tuition and fees for the 2017-18 academic year for the MA in Biomedicine program and other graduate programs is available on the Business Office website.
Financial aid and graduate assistantships
The program administrative team will oversee the allocation of available financial aid in the form of graduate assistantships. These awards will be handled by the university Financial Assistance Office and will constitute part of the student’s financial aid package. Typical graduate assistantship awards are between $500 – $1,000 per semester and expected workload hours are 5 – 10 hours per week. Graduate assistants are not permitted to carry academic loads greater than 12 hours per semester. Applications for a graduate assistant position are available.
The Federal Direct Student Loan program (unsubsidized) allows a graduate student to borrow up to $20,500 per award year with 5.84% interest. In addition, the Federal Direct Plus Loan program (credit-based) allows supplemental borrowing to cover educational related expenses at 6.84% interest. International students with US Permanent Resident cards are eligible for the Federal Direct Loan Programs. Financial aid is determined by the number of credit hours taken each semester.
