Tuition & Funding
The COPHP Program is operated as a self-sustaining program. A flat quarterly rate for course fees (i.e., tuition) is charged in autumn, winter and spring quarters. The 2013-14 quarterly rate for the class admitted in Autumn 2013 is $7,500.00, covering up to 12 credits per quarter. Additional university fees totaling approximately $500.00 are also charged each quarter. These additional fees support such things as registration services, technology, immunizations, student activities and facilities, and access to metro transit transportation. We anticipate an increase of an undetermined amount for the entering class of 2014. Please contact the COPHP Program office at (206) 685-0888 or email@example.com with questions.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
