*All University of Utah tuitions are assessed at the resident rate during summer semesters (the program spans three summers). Non-residents pay the non-resident tuition rate only during fall and spring semesters.

**Non-residents may qualify for residency status after the first year of study. View the residency policy.

Acceptance deposit of $1,000.00 is required, split into two payments: the first due at the time of acceptance, and the second due in mid-March. Acceptance deposits will be retained for distance education fees. Any remaining deposit balance may be applied as tuition credit. 

Due to the time commitment imposed by the program, employment during training is strongly discouraged. 

Tuition Refund Policy

Financial Aid

Some types of financial aid are credit-based, so it is recommended you obtain and review a copy of your credit report as early as possible. You may contact the University of Utah Financial Aid office for more information.

A financial aid presentation is also offered to candidates during in-person interviews.
