Every semester, the university updates the costs of
tuition and fees. The MSOT program covers 7 semesters. Please recognize that
tuition and fees for the summer sessions are calculated differently than for
regular fall and spring semesters. The guide below will help you determine the
anticipated tuition cost by using the numbers located under “Main Campus” on
and Fees website. Please make sure you look at the appropriate
fees (undergraduate/graduate and in-state/out-of-state). Here you will find
pdfs with the costs by semester. The chart at the bottom of the page provide
estimates for in and out of state students. These charts are based on 2018 fees are for estimation purposes only
and some variability may exist by student.
The Graduate School also offers a Cost
Estimator which also estimates the amount of Financial Aid you may
be eligible to receive.
is a required fee for professional students in the College of Allied Health
Sciences. These fees vary by program. As a student in the professional MSOT
program, all students are charged a tuition differential based on the number of
credits for the semester and ranges from approximately $500-$1000 per semester.
This cost is NOT included on the Tuition and Fee Schedule sheets identified
above. Please keep this in mind when calculating anticipated costs.
The books you purchase for the MSOT
program will become part of your professional library. Many of them are used in
multiple courses and will be excellent resources for fieldwork and as you begin
practice after graduation. It is anticipated you will spend approximately $1500
in books with the majority of that cost being the first 2 semesters.
Students are not responsible for
locating their own fieldwork placements. The program will provide those for the
student through a collaborative process of selection. Most of the fieldwork
placements do occur within the state of North Carolina and you should recognize
there may be extra cost associated with travel to a fieldwork site or housing
during the time of the placement. Students enrolled in fieldwork will also be
paying tuition for those credits during that time.
Depending on the research project in
which a student is participating, there may be associated research costs that
should be under $200 per student. The research advisor works to keep the cost
of research down for the students.
