Tuition & Financing

University of Michigan



Online MS tuition is $43,500 - 47,500 USD. Tuition rates are based on an approximate estimate of 42 credits over 5 terms, the typical enrollment for students in this degree program. A student's tuition rate is determined by residency (ie. Michigan residents and non-Michigan residents). We offer competitive rates for both in-state and out-of-state students. Because U-M is partially state-funded, Michigan residents pay a lower rate.

Tuition and Fees are subject to change without notice by the Regents of the University.

The University of Michigan is committed to providing a world-class public health education to future leaders across the world. All complete applications to the online MS program will be reviewed holistically for admission and aid consideration; no additional application is needed.

For more information on course schedules and credits, see the “Program Length” section on the Academics page.

Tuition Reimbursement

Many of our students are currently employed and benefit from tuition reimbursement through their employers. If you need any documentation from the University of Michigan to support this process with your employer, please reach out to (please include which program - Michigan's MPH or MS - you are interested in along with your inquiry).

Payment Plans

All students are eligible for university payment plans that break up tuition into monthly payments:

Student Loans

Like applicants to residential programs at the University of Michigan, we encourage domestic applicants to our online Master of Science program to submit their FAFSA as soon as possible. More information can be found on the university's Office of Financial Aid website and on the Department of Education website. All need-based financial aid is coordinated through the Office of Financial Aid.

International students may be eligible to apply for educational loans through a number of private and public organizations. The Department of Education website can provide further information on possible funding options, and the university's Office of Financial Aid also has specific resources for international applicants.

International Acceptance Regulations

Academic units cannot provide services, including online education, to individuals located in comprehensively sanctioned countries or regions as administered by the U.S. Department of Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). Additionally, U-M or its partners may block access to additional countries and regions where there are near-comprehensive sanctions and a perception of increased risk for export control violations. The list of countries and regions where U-M does not currently offer services, which may be subject to change, is as follows: Crimea, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Syria, and Venezuela.

All conditionally admitted online students, regardless of their location, will need to complete a certification form as a condition of enrollment. In this form, conditionally admitted students will certify that they will not access course content or any U-M services from a country or region on the “blocked” list described above.

Coursera does not grant credit, and does not represent that any institution other than the degree granting institution will recognize the credit or credential awarded by the institution; the decision to grant, accept, or transfer credit is subject to the sole and absolute discretion of an educational institution.

We encourage you to investigate whether this degree meets your academic and/or professional needs before applying.
