* Graduate tuition (projected) is based on 24 credits per year of 5000-9999 level courses ($528.41 per credit hour for in-state tuition and $690.21 for out-of-state tuition). This charge does not include the materials and supply fee (if applicable) and any late registration or late payment fees. The application fee for applying to the UF Graduate School is $30.00. There is no additional application fee for the FSHN MS-DI program.

** Off-campus housing estimates are based on an individual’s costs for renting an apartment, including utilities. Rental costs are based on a bi-annual survey of law student housing costs. The estimated annual food cost is based on costs of meals ($4,440) established by the US Department of Agriculture liberal food plan.

*** The cost of the plans is based on age. The figures shown represent the cost per year for students under 25 years. The cost for students 25 years of age and older is $1,897 per year. The plan is offered to UF students thorugh United Healthcare Student Resources. This plan is designed for Domestic Students, Unsupported Graduate Students, Post Doc Students and International Students. This plan provides benefits for 80% of the Usual & Customary Charges incurred for loss due to covered Injury or Sickness (if a preferred provider is used; 70% for an out of network provider) up to the Maximum Benefit of $500,000 per policy year. Students must use the services of Student Health Care Center (SHCC) first where treatment will be administered or a referral issued. Expenses incurred outside of the SHCC for which no prior approval or referral is obtained are excluded from coverage. Students are not required to receive a SHCC referral during medical emergencies, school breaks, when care is received more than 35 miles from campus, or when receiving obstetric/gynecological care or treatment for medical illnesses. Students do not need to purchase a policy from United Healthcare; however, they must provide proof of health insurance for the duration of their program of study.
