UMMC's Student Financial Aid maintains estimated costs of attendance and tuition, including information about SHRP programs such as the entry-level professional doctor of physical therapy degree program.
As stated in the UMMC Bulletin, the Medical Center reserves the right to increase or modify tuition and fees without prior notice subject to the approval of the Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning.
In addition to tuition and health insurance, students should be aware of the following additional expenses:
Total estimated first-year costs - $3,915
Total estimated second-year costs - $2,430
Total estimated third-year costs - $1,840
Students are not required to have a computer/device to enter the academic program. However, access to course content will be available electronically, and most students choose to bring devices to class. Computer labs are available to all students in the School of Health Related Professions. If students choose to bring a computer to class, the following requirements should be met in order to ensure that the computer/device meets minimum standards to function with UMMC platforms:
Windows 7 or Windows 10; Mac OS 10 or better;
We do not recommend any thin client devices such as Chromebooks or Google books.
Students are required to travel to off-campus clinical education experiences. Therefore, students should be prepared to provide their own transportation, housing accommodations, and other living expenses during these clinical affiliations. Please note that all students must go out of state for at least one eight-week clinical education experience, and out of the Jackson metropolitan area for another. Students should begin planning accordingly early in academic program.
Please note that the Doctor of Physical Therapy program is designed to be sequential. All entering cohorts will move through the lock-step curriculum together. Students are not allowed to withdraw from a single class without withdrawing from the entire program. When a student becomes interested in withdrawing from the program, the UMMC Bulletin provides details regarding the institution's withdrawal policy and related tuition refunds. Additionally, withdrawal dates are highlighted on the academic calendar provided on the School of Health Related Professions webpage.
