Cost of Attendance

 

Tuition & Fees for the 2014-2015 academic year will be finalized later this spring. Please check soon. The information provided on this  page applies to the 2013-2014 academic year.

The cost of attendance represents an estimate of what the College of Medicine, in cooperation with the University, has determined to be reasonable expenses that a student might incur while attending school for an academic year. The cost of attendance is significant because it limits the amount of total financial aid a student can receive to meet their expenses.

The Office of Student Financial Services strongly encourages students to determine their own cost of attendance (expenses) at the beginning of EVERY school year by creating a budget. By doing so, students will be able to determine if their expenses are greater or less than our estimated cost of attendance (see chart below).

If after completing a budget you determine that your expenses are greater than our cost of attendance, please email our office at medfinaid@osumc.edu. We can then discuss what options may be available for addressing your specific needs.  

As the table below illustrates, non-Ohio residents do not benefit from the tuition subsidy funded by Ohio taxpayers. Non-residents may be reclassified as in-state students if the student can demonstrate that he/she meets the eligibility criteria. For more details and other possible ways on how to obtain Ohio residency, please visit the Registrar's residency web page.
