Tuition, Fees and Financial Aid / Scholarship



All students are responsible for payment of tuition and other expenses. Tuition is charged on a per credit basis. The estimated total tuition for all 6 semesters of the required 41 minimal credit hours is about US$45,000, or about $1,100 per credit hour.

OD/MS concurrent degree students have 50% off the per credit hour rate.




Financial Aid / Scholarship

In some cases, scholarship, research funds, or other funds may be available to support some MS students.  Application and acceptance into the MS degree program is independent from the availability of financial support.  Any available funds to support MS students are subject to the requirements placed upon those funds by the funding source and generally not under the control or influence of the admissions committee.  If funding is from a research grant or contract, then the faculty member serving as the principal investigator usually makes decisions about all personnel supported by the grant. 

The Vision Science Program committee can alert students to potential funding opportunities.

Currently we have the following scholarship/financial aid opportunities available for MS students in the year of 2014-2015:
