Financial Assistance

A Graduate Education is Affordable!

Jumping into a graduate program can be a serious financial commitment. Fortunately, tuition at UTHealth School of Public Health is the lowest among the top ranked schools of public health and is a great value for your money.

The school wants to give you every opportunity to make the costs of a graduate program more affordable. Limited number of scholarships, traineeships, fellowships, school employment and other forms of student financial assistance are available. Some opportunities are need based while others are based on academic merit. 

The total cost of the program depends on the number of semesters in which you enroll. Students must be enrolled for a minimum of three credit hours per semester. Full-time status is 9 credit hours in each of the fall and spring semesters and 6 credit hours in the summer semester. The tuition and fees chart from the Office of the Registrar provides the price per credit hour for courses taken at the School of Public Health. Students are also required to maintain health insurance while enrolled at the School of Public Health. Students may purchase insurance through the university.

Please contact the Office of the Registrar with any additional questions regarding tuition and fees. 

* Scholarship applications are available in the spring semester of each year. Continuing students who meet the criteria are encouraged to apply.
