    Expenses and Tuition

    Tuition for 2013-2014 is $20,424 and $42,945 per year for Iowa residents and nonresidents, respectively. University fees are $620 per year for both Iowa residents and nonresidents. Tuition is lower during the second year because students are assessed for only two of the three semesters. Books and equipment expenses are estimated at $3,000 - $3,500 for each year of the program. The University reserves the right to change its fee schedule without notice.

    Financial Aid

    All financial assistance available to students from general University sources is administered by the Office of Student Financial Aid in the Carver College of Medicine. Students may receive aid in the form of scholarships, grants, and loans. The program has a limited number of merit awards based on academic performance.

    If a student withdraws for any reason, academic deadlines for refund of tuition and fees are set by the Registrar's Office at The University of Iowa. These can be found at the Office of the Registrar Calendars/Deadlines webpage. The Department Administrator works with the student so that the proper procedure is followed.
