Tuition and Fees

Expenses associated with Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences programs vary. Each program provides detailed information about the estimated cost of tuition, fees, mandatory expenses and living expenses, as well as any available scholarships, stipends and financial incentives for participation. See Academics for more information about each program.

Living expenses

Housing, transportation and meals are the student's responsibility. These living expenses are not paid to the school. They are, however, considered for purposes of processing financial aid, where applicable.

Mandatory expenses

Some programs may require purchases such as lab jackets, dues for student membership in national associations and registration for special events. Students are also responsible for their own health insurance.


Students may need access to an automobile for some courses and internships. Community learning experiences, for example, often require transportation. If so, students are responsible for the cost of transportation and must have personal auto liability insurance.

Additional employment

Outside employment is discouraged, but students may be employed on a supplemental basis as long as the job does not interfere with training and academic and clinical performance is satisfactory.

Financial aid

Scholarships may be available through the Office of Student Financial Aid and Registrar for those who demonstrate financial need.

Withdrawal and tuition refund

See the Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences withdrawal and tuition policy for more information.
