MPH Tuition Pricing

Financial assessment is often paramount in a student’s decision to apply, enroll, and remained enrolled in a graduate program.  In an effort to equally serve our in-state and out-of-state students, the Master of Public Health program does not charge a higher tuition rate based on residency (tuition rates are consistent among students who are Michigan residents, non-Michigan residents, and international residents).


Per SemesterCost
Tuition per credit hour $660
Tuition for 3 credits of enrollment $1,980
Tuition for 6 credits of enrollment $3,960
Tuition for 9 credits of enrollment $5,940


Tuition for 43 credits of enrollment $28,380



Please Note: In addition to the tuition pricing above, the university assesses taxes on the student registration bill.  Please see the University Taxes and Fees section below.


University Taxes and Fees

In addition to program tuition rates, the university assesses taxes for the FM radio tax, COGS (Council of Graduate Students) tax, and State News tax.  More information on late fees, taxes, and other financial information can be found on the Student Accounts website or by calling 517-355-3343.

Below is a table of easily avoidable late fees assessed by the university.  To avoid paying late fees, please reference the university’s Academic Calendar for registration, enrollment, and payment deadlines.




Late Registration Fee


Students who fail to return their payments by the bill due date may be subject to a late registration fee of up to $50. Students with a $0.00 minimum amount due must confirm their attendance by the bill due date. Failure to confirm attendance by the due date may result in a $25 late registration fee.

Late Enrollment Fee


Students may be subject to late enrollment fees if not registered by the enrollment deadlines specified in the university's Academic Calendar.  Late enrollment fees are waived for newly admitted and readmitted students.

Late Payment Fee


A late payment charge will be assessed on any past due student account.


Please Note: The university reserves the right to make changes in the types, structures, and rates for fees, deposits, tuition, and housing.  Every effort will be made to give as much advance notice as possible.

State Authorization: Distance Education Restrictions Based on Permanent Residence

Michigan State University is obligated to comply with existing state laws regarding distance education (programs/departments offering courses delivered exclusively online). State laws regarding distance education vary state-by-state, and even program-by-program within a state. The Master of Public Health offered through the College of Human Medicine’s Division of Public Health at Michigan State University requires a practicum experience that constitutes a physical presence in some states, therefore restricting enrollment in our program to residents of those states.

Prior to applying, please access the State-by-State Summary , for the most up-to-date approved and restricted states.  For more information, please visit MSU's State Authorization website .  Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
