Tuition & Aid

Along with tuition, there are other factors that add to overall costs of your graduate education.

Included in your assessment of what your graduate degree will ultimately cost should be tuition, fees and general attendance costs. Your ability to secure financial aid is an important consideration.

Tuition and Fees are due the first week of classes.

Tuition not covered by your financial aid must be paid in full unless you enroll in an the online payment plan. Payment plans are automatic and are interest free.

Cost of Attendance

Along with tuition, medical students should estimate the overall cost of completing an academic year - or the Cost of Attendance (COA) - in the DO program.

COA includes:

  • Direct costs (tuition and fees)
  • Indirect costs (books, supplies, room and board, personal and transportation costs)
  • Health Insurance (TUC requires participation in the TUC's Student Health Insurance Plan -SHIP - unless you are approved to be waived out of the program.

The COA – or student budget – not only lets you see the big picture costs of your degree but also serves to determine your financial needs and the amount of aid (federal loans and scholarships) for which you may qualify. Your COA, and subsequent financial aid eligibility, is determined and calculated based on the academic year, and so varies between nine and twelve months.
