A student must register for at least 12 credit hours per semester in Fall and Spring semesters to be considered a full time student. Registering for more than 12 credits will not increase tuition costs. The tuition rates in summer semester are determined per credit hour.

2-year MPH track: Typically, students enroll in full time status for FOUR semesters (2 fall semesters and 2 spring semesters). These students ordinarily do not enroll in any summer courses unless they elect to complete their APE internship during the summer.

1.5-year MPH track: Typically, students enroll in full time status for THREE semesters (2 fall semesters and 1 spring semester). In addition, these students complete four credit hours during the summer for their APE internship.

MPH-MUP, MPH-PhD track: The tuition for the MPH part of these joint degrees is same as 2-year or 1.5 year depending on how fast the student completes the degree requirements (4 semesters vs. 3 semesters).
