Cost of Attendance

The Cost of Attendance represents expenditures for a ten-month academic year at Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine at Quinnipiac University. It also represents the maximum financial aid available, including scholarships and loans you may receive for that academic period. The 2016/2017 budget adequately covers your tuition and fees, computer and supplies, living expenses and fairly represents the average expenses for our students.

Keeping the annual Cost of Attendance in mind, you should construct your own budget for living expenses. This will assist you in tracking your expenses to better manage your money while in medical school as well as estimating your total cost and resources for the next four years. By creating a budget, you will not only have an idea of funding you will need, but you will also become more aware of the amount you will be borrowing in student loans.

The Office of Financial Aid uses federal guidelines to develop Cost of Attendance budgets. Consideration for budget increases regarding childcare costs, healthcare issues, and additional credits must be requested in writing and should include appropriate supporting documentation. Listed below is additional information concerning the components of our Cost of Attendance.
