Tuition & Funding
The COPHP Program is operated as a self-sustaining program. Course fees(i.e., tuition) are assessed on a per credit basis. We are currently working on our budget for the academic year starting in the fall of 2013. Please call the COPHP Program office at (206) 685-0888 for the most up-to-date information on program costs.
Concurrent Students: Applicants interested in pursuing a concurrent degree program, one combining the COPHP Program with another fee-based or state-supported degree program, should consult with the COPHP Progam Director to clarify the relevant tuition/course fee structure. Additional tuition/course fees will apply.
Payments are due in quarterly installments prior to the official UW start date of each quarter. As credit loads for each quarter vary, quarterly course fee totals will vary accordingly. Specific details and instructions regarding registration, course fee payment, other related fees and deadlines are typically distributed by the program several weeks in advance of each quarter.
Students may apply for federal financial aid (low interest student loans). For information on federal financial aid, how to apply (FAFSA: Free Application for Federal Student Aid), applicable deadlines, etc., please visit the Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) web site at: http://www.washington.edu/students/osfa/graduate
If you have additional questions about the process or form after reviewing the web site, please contact OSFA at email@example.com or 206-543-6101.
Students in self-sustaining programs are not eligible for aid funded by state tuition revenue. These include the tuition exemption program for UW and WA State employees, the Graduate University Grant, and institutional tuition waivers.
Grants and Funding Information Service (GFIS): GFIS assists UW graduate students in their search for information about financial opportunities available outside the University of Washington. http://www.lib.washington.edu/gfis/
- Assistantships: There are assistantship opportunities across the UW campus and in the Department of Health Services. However, the self-sustaining nature of the program can impact eligibility for assistantships, so please contact the program if you are interested in pursuing one.
