Tuition and Financial Aid
With activity and technology fees, we estimate the total cost of the 28-month online program at $97,300. Note that this figure should only be used for estimation purposes as tuition rates are reassessed each academic year.
These are estimates and should be used only for determining approximate costs.
Students can expect a moderate tuition increase in the fall of each year.
The total cost of attendance includes tuition, room and board, books, transportation, health insurance and other expenses. The School of Medicine calculates aid based on an estimated cost of attendance, with allowances added for married students and/or students with dependents. This budget gives applicants and students a summary of the cost of attending the Physician Assistant Online program for each academic year.
