UMMC's Student Financial Aid maintains estimated costs of attendance and tuition, including information about SHRP undergraduate programs such as the Medical Laboratory Science 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, fees, health insurance, and professional association dues, students should be prepared to spend approximately $3,800 the first year and $3,020 the second year for necessary books, supplies, and uniforms.
Some books may be available in digital format. Students are required to have a computer/device to access books and perform additional tasks. This cost is factored into "Educational Supplies" above for the junior year.To ensure that you have a computer/device that meets minimum standards to function with UMMC platforms, it must at least function at the following levels:
We do not recommend any thin client devices such as Chromebooks or Google books.
Occasionally, MLS students are required to travel to off-campus clinical rotations. Therefore, students should be prepared to provide their own transportation and other incidental expenses during these clinical affiliations.
Please note that the Medical Laboratory Science curriculum is designed to be sequential (i.e., all courses for each semester are prerequisites for courses in subsequent semesters). 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.
