Students taking six or more hours of instruction are required to have health insurance per university policy.

Indirect costs like living expenses and transportation to and from classes and clinicals will vary widely, dependent on your lifestyle choices and home location. You are the best one to estimate those costs.

If you require student health insurance, it will add $1,804 per year (single coverage) to your cost. (Please note: Health insurance is not optional. If you do not have coverage, the state of Ohio requires you to purchase student health insurance.)
