How Much Will My Master’s Degree Cost?

Tuition, fees, and expenses comprise the cost of attendance for master’s programs at HMS. A Student Cost of Attendance (COA) Budget is developed each academic year for use in the evaluation of financial need. The student budget has two primary purposes: 1) to give students an estimate of reasonable costs to attend the School; and 2) to establish the federally required uniform cost of attendance standard against which to measure financial need.
