Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine Costs and Budgets

Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance represents expenditures for an 8- to 13-month academic year at Quinnipiac’s Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine. It also represents the maximum financial aid available, including scholarships and loans you may receive for that academic period. The 2024–25 budget adequately covers your tuition and fees, supplies, housing, food, transportation and miscellaneous expenses, and represents a fair estimate of the average expenses for our students.

Keeping the annual cost of attendance in mind, you should construct your own budget for living expenses. This will assist you in tracking your expenses to better manage your money while in medical school as well as estimating your total cost and resources for the next four years. Creating a budget will give you an idea of the funding you’ll need and help you become more aware of the amount you will be borrowing in student loans.

The Office of Financial Aid uses federal guidelines to develop cost-of-attendance budgets. Consideration for budget increases related to child care costs, healthcare issues and additional credits must be requested in writing and should include appropriate supporting documentation. Listed below is additional information concerning the components of our cost of attendance.

Living Allowance (Housing and Food): The living expense portion of the budget (housing, food, utilities and miscellaneous expenses) is listed for students who are living in an off-campus apartment as well as for those who are living at home with parent(s). These amounts are based on information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and the Consumer Price Index Urban (CPI-U) for the Northeast as of December 2022. The moderate Year 1 10-month budget for both living situations does not include living expenses for the summer or other debt.

Transportation: This amount is based on data from the Consumer Expenditure Survey for the Northeast and reflects increases in the Consumer Price Index Urban as calculated by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The transportation allowance does not take into consideration expenses related to owning a car or relocating to Connecticut.

Background Check Fees: A one-time expense is allotted for the cost of background check fees.

Loan Fees: Based on a 1.057% origination fee charged on the average medical school total borrowed through the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans this past award period.

Your overall individual costs will vary depending upon lifestyle choices, number of roommates, proximity to campus, etc. The cost of rent in this area has increased in recent years, so living with a roommate may help to curtail expenses. Our academic year budget reflects the expectation that you will have at least one roommate.
