Tuition and Fees

Campus Program

Campus Program Description

Tuition for the campus based MPH program may be assessed in two different ways. Upon accepting an offer of admission, students must indicate the appropriate billing method for their particular situation.

Campus Program Full-Time Tuition

Full-time students taking 9 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 at by clicking the tuition and fee ling for the current academic year and scrolling down to the bottom of the page.

Campus Program Part-Time Tuition

Part-time students taking less than 9 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.

Campus Program Tuition Waiver Policy

Waivers can only be used in the campus program on a space available basis. For further information, you may go to the UF EEP information page at:

Online Program

Online Program Description

Tuition for the online-based MPH program is set at a per credit rate. There is no block tuition option. All tuition is assessed at the same rate, regardless of residency status. There are, however, additional fees assessed for online courses.

Online Program Tuition

Online students pay a per-credit tuition rate of $550 per credit.

Online Program Fees

Online students pay a fee rate of $35.75 per credit.

Online Program Tuition Waiver Policy

The online Master of Public Health program is a self-funded program. Therefore, students in the online program cannot use a UF EEP, UF Teaching Assistant, or State Tuition waiver for online courses.

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.

Late Fees

Late registration fee – Students must clear all student holds by checking the website – ALL students will have holds every semester, particularly the “Preparation for Registration” hold and the “Emergency Contact” holds, though students may experience other holds in the course of the program. Students will remove holds, register for their own courses, and pay their tuition at the Student Self Service website at Failure to register or remove holds in a timely manner may result in the University accessing a $100 late registration fee.

Late payment fee – Students must pay their tuition using Student Self Service,, or mail a check to the address posted there by the UF tuition deadline. Full tuition must be paid by 3:30 of the 2nd Friday in the semester. Students who do not pay their tuition by this deadline will incur a $100 late payment fee. Students who have a financial aid or military assistance fee deferment will have this noted on their records. It is the responsibility of the student to verify these deferments.

Re-enrollment fee – Students who do not make at least a partial payment by the 3rd Friday of the semester are subject to automatic withdrawal from classes. This withdrawal does NOT waive tuition responsibility. The UF Registrar’s Office will require a form requesting reenrollment and a $100 fee to reinstate course enrollment.

Note: Students who do not register for two semesters in a row or more will be required to submit a readmission application and $30 application fee to resume program participation.
