Tuition & Expenses

Full 5-Quarter Post-Bac Program

The full five-quarter Post-bac Program tuition and fees are $30,000 ($6,000 per quarter), which includes the cost of all coursework, test preparation, application preparation, advising and Quarter 5 track training (research, EMT or health equity internship). All test preparation materials are included in this cost; however, students are responsible for registering and paying for their own tests. Tuition covers the cost of EMT certification course but not the cost of the licensing exam.  Additionally, students are responsible for providing all other costs, including: housing, food, health insurance, transportation, and books.


If an applicant does not need a full five-quarter program to meet their needs, they may elect to register for one quarter at a time through the Office of Continuing and Professional Education. Tuition and fees will cost $6,000, which includes the cost of up to three courses, test preparation, and application preparation. Students may purchase however many quarters they wish to on a quarter by quarter basis.

Students can borrow up to $51,000 per year (or $10,000 per quarter) to help with living expenses.

Financial Aid

Although this is a certificate granting program, we unfortunately do not have access to federal loans. Participants needing financial aid will need to secure private loans to cover the cost of tuition and other expenses.
