Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance is the estimated cost of completing an academic year as a full time student and includes tuition, fees, books/equipment, course/loan fees, living expenses, and other required costs as approved by your program. These estimates are conservative by design, and in no way attempt to reflect differences in actual costs incurred by students with differing lifestyle choices. Living expense estimates are based on academic periods of enrollment; summer living expenses are not funded unless you are required to be enrolled.

Students enrolled in the UNMC Military Physician Assistant program are not eligible for federal or private student loan funds. The UNMC Office of Financial Aid cannot assist Military PA students with loan certifications  to meet personal needs.  The cost of the program is fully funded by the U.S. Military.  Students are not billed for tuition and fees and living costs are not considered for this program.  As a result, a cost of attendance, for purposes of financial need assessment,  is not developed.   We have been advised to direct students to their commanding officer to discuss family or personal living expense needs.
