The Financial Aid package is based on the Cost of Education (COE) budget. Per federal regulations, the COE budget represents average costs for the months you are actively enrolled in courses and the total loan amounts borrowed, and scholarships awarded from all sources cannot exceed the Cost of Education.   Students concurrently enrolled in another degree program at LECOM (or another institution) will have a COE for ther Master’s program equal to LECOM tuition and mandatory fees.  Students who are not currently enrolled in any other program are eligible to have room, board, transportation, and other miscellaneous expenses added to the cost of education budget.  The COE budget may not always meet the student’s full financial responsibilities and is subject to change without notice.

*The $150 matriculation fee will be waived for currently enrolled LECOM students applying for the program.

**Current LECOM students, alumni and Millcreek Hospital Medical Residents may request a LECOM Scholarship. Program fees are not included in any scholarship awarded.  Students must apply to program prior to enrollment deadline to qualify for any scholarship awards.  LECOM students concurrently enrolled may only receive one LECOM Scholarship so if the School of Health Services Administration scholarship is accepted, any core program scholarships are no longer effective.  All LECOM student scholarships and discounts are subject to change without notification.

***Current LECOM employees and affiliate organizations may request a tuition discount.  Program fees are not included in the discount.
