Student cost of attendance budgets are developed each academic year by the HWCOM Office of Financial Assistance and are dependent on tuition and fee structures set by the governing boards. Therefore, the cost of attendance (COA) may be an estimate early in the financial aid award process and is subject to change. The cost of attendance is used to evaluate financial need and award aid, and provides students with an estimate of the reasonable cost of HWCOM attendance.

Standard student budgets are based on typical expenses for a single student. Costs for a student's spouse or children are not included in the standard student budget; these expenses are accounted for in the need analysis formula of the FAFSA.

MD tuition and fees

Tuition and fees are charged at a flat yearly rate, regardless of the actual hours in which a student is enrolled. The academic term includes the full academic year, so all courses taken during the academic year are covered. Tuition is billed three times yearly: one-third the cost of tuition is billed each fall, spring, and summer semester. In the fourth year, it is charged 50% fall, 50% spring due to their not being a summer semester.

Please see the following for an illustration of the payment structure for the entire MD degree.
