Tuition and Expenses

Fees and Tuition Schedule

Deposit/Registration Fee
Once admitted to the Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics course, a non-refundable tuition deposit of $150 is required from all students, due April 1, 2014. The deposit will be applied toward the student’s tuition and fees. This does not include certain course materials (i.e., textbooks). In addition, participants are responsible for all other expenses associated with attending courses and/or living in Boston (i.e., food, housing, transportation, health insurance coverage).

Students accepted to the course pay a tuition of $1,200 per credit ($9,000) for this course. Tuition and credits are transferable to future HSPH degree programs. Tuition is due before June 2, 2014. Lack of payment by the deadline will negate enrollment in the course. Please note that financial assistance is not available for this course.

*Please note: If a student is sponsored by an outside organization, the sponsor is required to complete the requested online sponsor form. It is the student’s obligation to make sure that their sponsor makes payment before the course begins. Lack of payment by a sponsor prior to the beginning of the course will jeopardize a student’s ability to attend the course. If the sponsor fails to make payment, it is ultimately the student’s responsibility to pay their bill in full. Please visit and have the sponsor visit the sponsor bill information website. E-payments can only be processed through US banks.

Cancellation Policy

Admitted students who withdraw from the course on or before June 2, 2014, will be reimbursed their tuition fee minus the $150 deposit. A written request to withdraw must be received on or before those dates to receive the full reimbursement. Withdrawal after those dates corresponds to a pro-rated schedule.

Course Cancellation Policy
HSPH reserves the right to cancel the course for insufficient enrollment.
