Costs

Tuition and Fees

The cost for the online MPH program is based on a per credit hour tuition rate. In-state and out-of-state tuition is at the same rate. The current tuition rate, as of July 2012 and will continue for the 2013-14 school year, is $550 per credit hour plus UF fees of $35.75 per credit hour. This equates to approximately $585.75* per credit hour..Each semester’s tuition payment is based on the number of courses taken in each semester times the cost per credit. Tuition and fees are subject to change each fall semester but you can estimate the total tuition and fees cost of the program by multiplying the current rate times the number of credits (48) in the program. In-state, out-of-state, and international students pay the same tuition and fee rate.
