Tuition and Expenses

Secondary banner

 

In addition to USA tuition and fees, students can expect expenses associated with textbooks, food and lodging. Students will also be required to purchase uniforms, laboratory coats, stethoscopes, otoscopes, ophthalmoscopes, sphygmomanometers and blood pressure cuffs, soft reflex hammers, and tuning forks.
Also, students should anticipate extra expenses, particularly related to housing, transportation, living expenses and the patient logging system (Typhon) during the clinical year. Financial Aid may not cover these expenses. See estimated costs below.

The University reserves the right to change tuition and fees, as deemed necessary by the Board of Trustees, without prior notice. Click here to see the latest University tuition and fees.
