The cost of attendance varies each semester, and is contingent on a student's enrollment (full or part-time), residency status and associated university and program fees.

Please note the HIA program typically expects completion of the internship during the summer between the first and second years. Please consider the tuition and fees associated with this course during the summer within your financial planning.

International Students

The International Student Scholars Office (ISSO) develops an annual estimate of costs for a non-resident, full-time enrolled student in the Health Informatics & Analytics program. A detailed breakdown for the 2022-2023 academic year can be found here.

Distance Education (DE)

While we view online as one of the modalities by which we deliver courses in our HIA programs, the university designation of ‘Distance Education Program’ reflects a specific status that confers some advantages (largely related to the assessment of tuition and fees) to students pursuing a fully online pathway. 

We currently offer a fully online pathway to completing the HIA Graduate Certificate. Pursuing a distance education program can offer some financial advantages. Please note that distance education tuition rates vary based on residency.
