Costs

Topics:

Tuition and Fees

The cost for the online MPH program is based on a per credit hour tuition rate.

  • In-state,out-of-state, and international tuition is at the same rate.
  • Each semester’s tuition payment is based on the number of courses taken in each semester times the cost per credit.

2014-2015 Tuition rate:

  • Tuition = $550.00 per credit hour
  • Student fees = $35.75 per credit hour
  • Total per credit = $585.75 per credit hour

The MPH program is a 48-credit program, so for the full tuition cost, multiply the total per credit rate times 48 to get an estimate of the full tuition, bearing in mind that tuition is subject to change each fall semester.

Financial Aid and Scholarships

The online MPH program is qualified for federal student financial aid provided that applicants meet the federal eligibility requirements.

Applications and eligibility requirements for financial aid can be found at the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) site at www.fafsa.ed.gov.

  • The University of Florida code for the FAFSA is 001535.

Students must be at least half-time enrolled in each semester that they are requesting financial aid. Half-time enrollment is 5 credits for fall or spring semesters and 4 credits for summer semester.

For information regarding federal or private loan eligibility, or loan processing questions or concerns, please contact the College’s financial aid office:

The online MPH program does not offer scholarships at this time.
