Cost of Attendance (COA)

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

Total 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 financial aid eligibility, are determined and calculated based on the academic semester.
