Tuition & Fees

Tuition and fees are subject to change, as determined by the University of Nebraska Board of Regents. Questions regarding residency status should be directed to UNMC Student Services.

For the current tuition and fees, please see UNMC Financial Aid Costs of Attendance. Please note: beginning in 2018-19, the total tuition will be spread out over 4 semesters instead of 5 semesters (as it is currently); thus, the cost per semester will increase because of how the tuition is distributed.

Breakdown of Other Fees.

Medical Nutrition Scholarships: Two new scholarships will be awarded, for the first time during the 2016-2017 academic year, from the Sandy Stork and Barbara Robertson Medical Nutrition Scholarship Fund. One scholarship will be awarded to a Nebraska resident and one will be awarded to a non-resident. Candidates for the scholarship awards will be pursuing the Post-baccalaureate Certificate or Master’s degree option. Preference will be given to candidates who have demonstrated financial need.

Health Insurance: Medical Nutrition Program students must have health insurance throughout their enrollment in the program. This requirement can be met by purchasing a University-endorsed plan, or the student can provide evidence of comparable coverage through spouse’s, employer’s, parent’s, or personal plan, in which case the fee is waived.

Housing: Information about housing both on and off campus may be found at the UNMC housing website. Housing and living expenses are not included in the estimated tuition and related expenses above. See the financial aid office for details on living allowances.

Technology Requirement: All students are required to have a computing device for use in the program. Financial aid is available for students who need it. Click for a list of computers specs needed for the program. Contact the UNMC Financial Aid office to request funding for the device requirement.
