Cost of attendance (COA) discloses expenses for first- through fourth-year medical school students for the current academic year.

For those students dually enrolling in the Doctor of Medicine and Master of Public Health programs, the course of study extends over five years. In the first two years, students complete their Master of Public Health degree and the first year of their medical school studies. Students will follow the MD/MPH budget, plus one-half of medical school tuition each year. The latter three years will consist of year two through year four of medical school studies; during this time, students follow the regular MD budget.

Typically finalized for an academic year during the June Board of Visitors meeting, the governing board reserves the right to change tuition and fees as required during the academic year without prior notice.

Financial aid is disbursed in equal amounts at the beginning of each term. 

Your actual cost of attendance budget will be viewable when you log in to your EVMS Online Financial Aid System via your student portal. The cost of attendance budget includes loan fees based on in-state or out-of-state budgets. A student's individual cost of attendance may be slightly different from what appears on this page based on approved adjustments. Review your budget closely and only borrow what you truly need. 

As part of the Higher Education Act, as amended, regulations governing elements were established. Federal regulation requires that all need determinations be based on a single student budget for a program. If you demonstrate unusual expenses, see the guidelines to request a budget increase. All requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis within federal regulations.
