2024 - 2025 Cost of Attendance

Professional Schools:  Physician Assistant Program

The Cost of Attendance (COA) is an estimate of school-related expenses the student can expect to have for the academic year, or semester of enrollment. The COA is composed of the following categories: tuition and fees; books, course materials, supplies, and equipment; living expenses (housing and food); transportation/travel, and some personal/miscellaneous expenses. These components are determined in accordance with law, Higher Education Act of 1965, section 472, and are designed to cover the educational-related expenses of the student. In addition, the cost of attendance will consider the residency status, living arrangements (i.e. living with parents, on campus, off campus), and, in some cases, the student’s major.

This data is based on full-time enrollment (9 credits per semester; 18 credits per academic year).
