Medical School Tuition

The University of Cincinnati College of Medicine tuition is set annually by the Board of Trustees of the University of Cincinnati.  MD students pay 10 semesters of tuition during the four years of the standard academic program according to the following schedule:

  • Year One: 2 semesters
  • Year Two: 3 semesters
  • Year Three: 3 semesters
  • Year Four: 2 semesters

Students are assessed tuition based on their state of residency as determined by the university. Information about the process of being reclassified as an Ohio resident for purposes of tuition assessment is available by going to UC's Registrar website.  A helpful video on Ohio residency for tuition purposes is also available.

OHIO RESIDENCY UNDER “FOREVER BUCKEYE”

Ohio high school graduates who have left Ohio but who return to enroll in an Ohio public institution of higher education can receive in-state tuition under the Forever Buckeye program. Further information is available on UC's Registrar website.   Ohio residents who leave Ohio to attend undergraduate college in another state should submit the Ohio Residency Application even if they return to Ohio immediately after graduation.

KENTUCKY METROPOLITAN RATE

Residents of Kentucky are eligible for the Kentucky Metropolitan Rate equal to Ohio in-state tuition plus $300 per semester. The Kentucky Metropolitan Rate Application must be completed and returned to the University of Cincinnati Office of the Registrar by the first day of the semester (this deadline is strictly enforced by their office). Further information is available on UC's Registrar website.

INDIANA RECIPROCITY & INDIANA METROPOLITAN RATE

Residents of certain Indiana counties may be eligible for Indiana Reciprocity, under which they are charged the in-state Ohio resident tuition.  In addition, residents of specific counties in the Indianapolis area may be able to pay a rate equal to Ohio in-state tuition plus $300 per semester.  Students must be a dependent of an Indiana resident who lives in the eligible county (as evidenced by a parent/legal guardian's federal income tax return for the most recent tax year listing the student as a dependent).  Applications and supporting documents must be submitted to the University of Cincinnati Office of the Registrar by the first day of the semester (this deadline is strictly enforced by their office).  Certain restrictions may apply, and further information is available on UC's Registrar website.
