A Graduate Education is Affordable!

Jumping into a graduate program can be a serious financial commitment. Fortunately, tuition at The University of Texas School of Public Health is the lowest among the top 15 ranked schools of public health and is a great value for your money.

Currently, a full 12 months* of in-state tuition and basic fees are close to $5,500**. Out-of-state tuition and fees are about $17,600. Most competitive scholarships and traineeships of $1,000.00 allow out-of-state students to qualify for in-state tuition.

The UT School of Public Health wants to give you every opportunity to make the costs of a graduate program more affordable. Scholarships, traineeships, fellowships, school employment and other forms of student financial assistance are available. Some are need-based, while others consider academic merit.

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

** There are a small number of new student scholarships available to those who apply by the preferred deadline.

Please note that not all students will receive a scholarship or traineeship, and federal financial aid is not available to international students.

* Full-time is considered 12 months: 9 hours in the fall and spring semesters and 6 hours in the summer semester.
** Does not include mandatory health insurance.
