The above costs reflect the estimated resident tuition and fees for all credit hours taken over the course of three semesters (full-time) or five semesters (part-time). International non-resident students are required to attend the program full-time (9 credits minimum). All non-resident students pay resident tuition and fees for the summer semester, so it’s more cost effective to attend the program in three semesters (fall, spring, summer). Tuition rates may change without notice. Generally, if tuition and fees increase, it occurs prior to the start of summer semester each year. This information comes from the University of Utah’s Income Accounting and Student Loan Services, which has the most current information.

Student Loans

There are many student loan programs available to help finance graduate education. Loan programs of particular interest to graduate students are:

  • Federal Direct Loans
  • Direct Graduate PLUS Loans
  • Private Education Loans

Applicants can apply for most loans through the University of Utah Financial Aid and Scholarships Office.

To begin the process of applying for federal assistance, fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Additional financial aid resources:

  • FinAid offers detailed financial aid information.
  • FastWeb allows students to efficiently search scholarships.

International Students

Applicants requiring a visa to attend school in the U.S. unfortunately are not eligible for U.S. federal financial aid. To fund their education, many international students take education loans from their home country or have family members financially support them during their studies. Additionally, international students who apply by the priority deadline have the opportunity to apply for a scholarship to cover most of the non-resident portion of tuition.

Resources for Veterans

The University of Utah’s Veterans Support Center provides many resources to Veterans and can answer questions about financial assistance for veterans including VA Benefits.
