Tuition and Financial Aid

Tuition and fees

For 2016-2017, course tuition is $1,100, which includes course materials (excluding the textbook) and educational credits. Tuition reflects the current per-credit charge for the associate degree-level courses offered through Mayo School of Health Sciences.

Financing continuing education and professional development opportunities is the responsibility of the student. Tuition needs to be paid in full prior to the first day of class.

Other expenses

Students are responsible for purchasing the textbook. Students are also responsible for lodging and meals while in Rochester, Minnesota, for Module 2 and Module 3. Hotel rates range from $70 a night to more than $255 a night.

Living expenses

Living expenses, such as transportation, housing and meals, are the responsibility of the student. These expenses are not paid to the school but are considered for purposes of processing financial aid, where applicable.

Financial aid

Mayo School of Health Sciences offers financial incentives for students to participate in many of its health sciences training programs. Scholarships, grants and low-interest loans may be available for those who demonstrate financial need.
