Tuition, Financial Aid, and Funding Opportunities
Financial Aid | Scholarships | Graduate Assistantships | International Funding
Tulane SPHTM provides a high-quality education in the top tier of public health schools at a competitive tuition rate. More than 95% of our graduates find jobs or continue their education within a year of graduation.
Tuition is assessed per credit hour, ranging from a total of 42 to 45 credits for the MPH/MSPH to 60 credit hours for the MHA degree. The typical graduate student takes 9 to 15 credits per semester. Fees for academic support services, student activities, recreation center, health center, and technology services are added to the total cost per semester.
As a private, nonprofit educational institution, there is no difference between in-state and out-of-state tuition.

Students usually finance their graduate education through a combination of financial aid, scholarships, and work-study or graduate assistantship opportunities. Counselors in Tulane's Office of Financial Aid consider not only tuition, but also required fees, books and supplies, and living expenses in preparing a financial aid package to qualified students. All application documentation, however, must be completed before that office can determine a financial aid package.

There is no separate application process for academic scholarships. Partial scholarship funding is based on a combination of merit, need, and other endowment requirements. All applications for accepted students with accompanying financial aid form are considered for potential funding. Please work with your department to learn more.
Prospective doctoral students should submit their complete application package by December 1 to be eligible for a limited number of full doctoral tuition scholarships (plus stipend) available for the first two years of study. Refer to your department contact for more information.
Most departments offer graduate research and teaching assistantships throughout the year but these are not available in advance of matriculation. In addition, work study in the form of administrative support positions is also available for those who qualify for financial aid.
Public health traineeships that provide funds to defray educational costs are based on available funding from HRSA. Look for opportunities such as this once you are on campus.
Funding for International Students
Federal United States financial aid is not available to international students. Many students from outside of the U.S. find funding through their government, private foundations, or private loan programs. Once on campus, international students may be eligible for research or teaching assistantships through their departments. The Tulane Office of Financial Aid has suggestions and links for international students on their website.
