Tuition and Fees

For information on tuition and fees for the entry-level professional Master of Occupational Therapy program, contact the Office of Student Accounting.

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, students should prepare to spend approximately $3,500 per year for necessary books, supplies and uniforms. Students are also required to complete two 12 week full time clinical rotations which are typically not within commuting distance from the Jackson area, and at least one of these placements may be out of the state of Mississippi. Therefore, students should be prepared to provide their own transportation, living, and other incidental expenses during these clinical affiliations.

Note that the MOT 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
