Medical School Tuition
The University of Cincinnati College of Medicine tuition is set annually by the Board of Trustees of the University of Cincinnati. Medical students pay a total of ten (10) semesters of tuition during the four years of the standard academic program (fall and spring each year plus two summer semesters at the start of each of the M3 and M4 years).
Students are assessed tuition based on their state of residency as determined by the university. Under certain conditions, non-residents can reclassify for in-state Ohio resident tuition. Options are also available for residents of Kentucky and Indiana to afford their medical education at a rate near the in-state amount as well. Information pertaining to all of the university's residency options for Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana are available on UC's Registrar website.
OHIO RESIDENTS: Full-time tuition & fees in 2022-23 are $16,998 per semester. The annual total for first-year MD students is $33,996*.
NON-OHIO RESIDENTS: Full-time tuition & fees in 2022-23 are $26,427 per semester. The annual total for first-year MD students is $52,854*. (This does not apply to students who may qualify for reduced tuition under the Kentucky

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 (see provision "C8"). 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.
OHIO RESIDENCY FOR STUDENTS WITH A BACCALAUREATE DEGREE FROM OHIO
Medical students who previously earned a baccalaureate degree (i.e. bachelor's degree) from an Ohio institution of higher learning (public or private) can also receive in-state tuition immediately upon their matriculation into medical school.
Further information and details on applying are available on UC's Registrar website (see provision "C11").
