Tuition and budget

The post-professional D.P.T. student cost of attendance budget is based on an academic year that consists of three terms. Your financial aid is determined by your course load each term and your enrollment status. You must maintain at least a half-time status for financial aid eligibility and each term you must apply for funds.


2014-2015 Academic Year

  • DMU alumni and preceptors – $516 per credit hour*
  • Non-alumni – $572 per credit hour*

*Tuition, fees and policies for the University education programs are subject to change.  To link to the Accounting website click HERE.

Books and supplies

  • Full-time budget: $300 (registered for 9 or more credit hours per trimester)
  • Half-time budget: $150 (registered for 5 credit hours, but less than 9 credit hours per trimester)

These budgets are based on one term.

To calculate your cost of attendance budget, multiply your registered credit hours by the amount of your tuition per credit hour.  Add the result to your full-time or half-time sub total expense budget. The result is your budget for the current term.

Students are only eligible to receive funding to cover direct educational costs: tuition, fees and books.
