Tuition & Fees

A graduate education is affordable!

Jumping into a graduate program can be a significant 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.

UTHealth School of Public Health is among the best values in the country for graduate education. Resident tuition and fees for one year cost approximately $5500, while non-residents pay about $17,600, based on 24 semester credit hours.

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

The total cost of the program depends on the number of semesters for which you enroll. The tuition and fees chart from the Office of the Registrar gives the price per credit hour of courses at the SPH.

An additional fee of $35/credit hour (for students in Texas) or $750/credit hour (for students outside of Texas) will be added for online courses.
