DMS Degree Tuition

The Doctor of Medical Science degree program is based on flat-rate pricing so there will not be an increase in credit-hour costs from the time you start classes until you finish the program at the expected Standard Pace of 9 semesters or sooner. Should you take more time than the Standard Pace, the credit-hour cost from the 10th semester forward will be the tuition cost at the time. The following tuition and fee charges are in effect for the 2023–2024 academic year.

Tuition is $725 per credit hour for a total of $36,250 for 50 credit hours. There are no fees charged in the DMS program. Changes to the flat-rate tuition pricing most typically occur with the start of the Summer Semester, Session A but changes can occur at any time. Students are billed per semester based on the number of credit hours they are taking. Textbooks are available online and part of your tuition.
