Public Health Graduate Certificates - Projected Cost of Attendance


2017 - 2018

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 for based on in-state (IS) or out of state (OS) 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 Cost of Attendance 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 and form to request a budget increase.  All requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis within federal regulations.


** Calculated based on attending at least half time and taking sufficient credits within 2 or 3 terms to complete the certificate (see program for course sequence).  Some courses may not be available in some terms; courses do not have prerequisites so may be taken in any order.  You MUST notify Financial Aid via your initial application as to planned level of enrollment and update via Revised Educational Plan.   If not at least half time, some private loans through outside lenders for non-degree (certificate) programs may be available.  See historical lending list on our website for more information on that option or contact our office.  

Funds disbursed in equal disbursements at the beginning of each term.
