Tuition and Financial Aid

Tuition and Fees

UF’s Master of Public Health Program offers competitive tuition for all students. Please note that the Online MPH program tuition is slightly different than the Campus MPH tuition. Tuition costs are based on the 2024-2025 academic year and excludes all fees. Tuition is subject to change between academic years. It is important that students are aware of the differences between the two program options. Please click here to learn more about the academic requirements for the Online and Campus MPH programs.

Campus MPH Program

Tuition for the campus-based MPH program may be assessed in two different ways: block tuition or billed per credit hour. Upon accepting an offer of admission, students must indicate the appropriate billing method for their particular situation.

Campus MPH Program Full-Time Tuition

Full-time students taking nine or more credits per semester (in both 48 credit and accelerated 42 credit programs) are billed in four equal block payments over their first four semesters enrolled, including summer. Current tuition block rates for the MPH program can be found on the university Bursar’s website by clicking the tuition and fee link for the current academic year and scrolling down to the bottom of the page.

Campus MPH Program Part-Time Tuition

Part-time students taking less than nine credits per semester, as well as students admitted to the collaborative degree programs, are billed at the MPH credit hour rate (calculated by dividing the semester block tuition rate by 12) when enrolled in MPH courses.

Online Program Tuition Waiver Policy

The online Master of Public Health program is a self-funded program and traditionally does not accept UF EEP. The online program reserves the right to allow EEP tuition waiver use on a case-by-case basis, depending on space. Please contact askmph@phhp.ufl.edu for more information.

*Note that these programs are “self-supporting.” Per Florida Board of Governor Regulations 8.002, the term “self-supporting” describes a budgetary model and does not impact student financial aid eligibility. 

Employer Payments

If a student’s employer is paying all or part of the tuition payment, students must contact the UF Financial Services office to request an invoice for payment.

  • Employers must make tuition payments by the payment deadline for the semester.
  • Please make sure that employer-submitted payments contain a student’s name and UFID number.
  • Students who are on a reimbursement plan with their employer must make tuition payments by the semester deadline.

Financial Aid

  • Applications and eligibility requirements for financial aid can be found at the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) site. The University of Florida code for the FAFSA is 001535.
  • Domestic (U.S.) students who apply for the traditional, campus-based MPH program by February 15 for the following fall semester will automatically be considered for a limited number of one-time merit based Dean’s Scholarships. (Note: The online MPH program does not offer scholarships at this time.)
  • The College of Public Health and Health Professions also offers several scholarships to eligible students.
  • Other graduate funding resources can be found at UF Graduate School Funding Resources
