General Student Fee: Per Credit Hour: $75

Continuing Enrollment Fee: $1,650

Cost of Attendance

The Cost of Attendance (COA) is determined by MGH Institute in accordance with federal regulation. The COA is the maximum amount of financial aid funds you may receive every two semesters. The COA consists of the Tuition and Fees for the two-semester loan period plus a basic Living Expense Allowance to cover the eight (8) months encompassed by the two semesters. Contact the Financial Aid Office with questions.

Two-Semester Living Expenses Estimate:

Graduate Programs (for two semesters) Accelerated BSN Program (for two semesters)
Housing - $15,200
Food - $3,432
Books, course materials, supplies, and equipment- $2,500
Transportation - $3,200
Loan Fees - $1,490
Miscellaneous/Personal - $4,200
Total living expense allowance - $30,022
Housing - $15,200
Food - $3,432
Books, course materials, supplies, and equipment- $2,500
Transportation - $3,200
Loan Fees - $90
Miscellaneous/Personal - $4,200
Total living expense allowance - $28,622

 

Since the COA represents the maximum amount of funding you may receive (including living expenses), not all students will need to borrow up to this amount. Living like the student that you are now – and not the professional you are about to the become – could make a huge difference later.

Budgeting and living within your means while you are a student could save you thousands of dollars in the end. Consider a roommate or two to keep living expenses low. Careful budgeting on everyday items can also minimize loan borrowing. Check on your budget and spending before you decide what you'll need to borrow for living expenses. Remember, you are paying back everything you borrow with interest, so borrowing only what you need will save you money later.

To arrive at your individual COA, you should estimate your anticipated living and needs expenses, plus an amount for fees, books and supplies, and add the total amount to the tuition and fees for the two-semester increments for which you will be borrowing. You should only borrow what you need and you may only borrow up to the COA maximum amount as outlined above.

COA increase requests due to extenuating circumstances will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the Financial Aid Office. Any adjustments to Cost of Attendance requires documentation as requested.
