Online MPH tuition is approximately $50,000 for Michigan residents, $55,000 for out-of-state students. Tuition rates are based on an approximate estimate of 42 credits over 6 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 the University of Michigan is partially state-funded, Michigan residents pay a lower tuition.

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.

Financial Resources

The School of Public Health considers all admitted online MPH students for partial tuition scholarships funded by the school. Scholarship awards from the School of Public Health are based on both need and merit and provide finding for up to 25% of your total tuition costs. Consideration is based on your degree program application materials. You are not required to submit any additional application materials to be considered. Applicants who meet the priority application deadline are offered first consideration for funding.
