The cost of the program for students, including tuition, living expenses, and health care, is the student’s responsibility. Each student who currently receives federal financial aid (loans, grants scholarships, or work-study) or would like to apply for such aid, is encouraged to see a counselor in the Office of Financial Aid.
The time-saving advantage of the AMDP program – completing a master’s degree in one additional year – may be lost if the student does not follow an efficient plan of study when they enter the program.
