Tuition and Financial Aid

Graduate education is an investment in your future, and it’s important that you have the resources to explore your options and support throughout the process.

Tuition and Fees 

The online Master of Science in Health Informatics & Analytics program requires you to complete 36 credits to earn your degree. Tuition is $1,400 per credit for the 2019–2020 academic year. The total tuition for the program is approximately $50,400 at the current tuition rate.

In addition to tuition costs, you are responsible for covering transportation to and from the on-campus immersion, in addition to lodging, meals, and local transportation while in attendance. You are also responsible for the costs of your own textbooks and other course materials.

Please note that tuition is subject to change and moderate increases are to be expected each academic year. To confirm a place in the program, admitted candidates must pay a nonrefundable $200 deposit that will be applied to tuition.

Financial Aid 

When you are planning how to fund your master’s degree, you can explore a number of options that might be available to you.

You should apply for financial aid while applying for admission to allow adequate time for the Office of Financial Aid to process your application. You should not wait for an acceptance letter to apply for aid. 

Employer Support 

Earning your degree online while working allows you to apply what you have learned in real time. As a result, many employers are willing to support continuing education. As you research how to fund your master’s degree, we recommend you speak to your employer to see if they offer tuition support programs. You can reach out to your human resources department or manager to start the process. An admissions counselor can also advise you on the most effective ways to approach this conversation.

Federal Loans 

U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply for federal student aid programs through the U.S. Department of Education (DOE), including:

  • Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans: Most graduate-level students are potentially eligible to receive up to $20,500 per academic year with the Direct Unsubsidized Loan. Learn more about graduate annual loan limits.
  • Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loans: The Direct Graduate PLUS Loan requires credit check approval. If approved, you can borrow up to the cost of attendance as determined by the school.

To apply for these loans, you must first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online. Use your FSA ID, which can be created on the Federal Student Aid Web site, and add the Tufts University school code: 002219.
