Cost of Attendance


Tuition & Fees for the 2014-2015 academic year have now been finalized and made public. Please refer the updated tuition & fee information posted on the University Registrar's website.


The Cost of Attendance (COA) 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 medical school for a specific academic year. The Cost of Attendance is significant because it determines the amount of total financial aid a student can receive for that academic year.

The Office of Student Financial Services strongly encourages students to create a personal budget. By doing so, students will be able to determine if their expenses are greater or less than our estimated Cost of Attendance. Students should not assume that they will need the maximum level of funding allowed by the Cost of Attendance. A student's personal expenses such as housing, food, utitlities, and other costs can only be considered for semesters that the student is actively enrolled at least half-time.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.  

Students who are 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.
