* Tuition rates are based on current UMMC graduate tuition rates. There is no additional charge for hours taken in excess of 9 per semester for graduate programs. As stated in the UMMC Bulletin, the UMMC 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. For additional information on UMMC graduate program tuition and fees, contact the Department of Student Accounting.


In addition to tuition, students should prepare to spend $3,500 to $4,500 per year for necessary books, supplies and uniforms. Students are also required to complete two 12-week full time clinical rotations and a 16-week specialty internship which are typically not within commuting distance from the Jackson area. At least one and potentially more of these placements may be outside of Mississippi. Therefore, students should be prepared to provide for their own transportation, living, and other incidental expenses during these clinical affiliations.

Please note that the OTD 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. If 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.
