Tuition

The tuition structure below represents estimated costs of attendance throughout the two-year program.

We have positioned our tuition model to be above all, focused on value. Our tuition model is projected at the lower half of the average tuition rates among comparable PA education institutions, both regional and top-tier. In addition, our unique 3+2 pathway eliminates a full year of tuition plus an added full year of career earnings.

Withdrawal and tuition refund

Students who find it necessary to withdraw from the program may be eligible for a tuition refund. Review the withdrawal and tuition refund policy.

Financial aid

Scholarships may be available for those who demonstrate financial need. The Office of Student Financial Aid and Registrar can provide more details about financial aid.

Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences awards need-based grants to students on an annual basis. Selection criteria for these awards are based on a formula that evaluates student-documented financial need and are determined by the Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences scholarship committee. The awards are made possible by generous benefactor contributions, and therefore the award amounts vary annually.
