Tuition & Financing

University of Michigan



Online MPH 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.

Rates are subject to change and approval by the Regents of the University of Michigan.

You won’t be billed upfront for the whole degree. Instead, you’ll pay as you go: billed by semester based on the number of credits you’ve enrolled in. If you need to take a term off, you won't be charged until you restart your courses. Payment processes are managed by the University of Michigan and its Office of the Registrar.

The University of Michigan is committed to providing a world-class public health education to future leaders across the nation. 40% of students in the Fall 2019 online MPH cohort received scholarship funding from the School of Public Health.

Student Loans

Student loans are available to fund your program costs. Like applicants to residential programs at the University of Michigan, we encourage applicants to our online Master of Public Health program to submit their FAFSA as soon as possible. Submitting your FAFSA and designating the University of Michigan as a college of choice will allow our Office of Financial Aid to calculate a financial package if you are admitted. All need-based financial aid is coordinated through the Office of Financial Aid.
