Cost of Attendance

Cost of Attendance is an estimate of direct and indirect costs that a medical student may have each year at Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine. Cost of Attendance (COA) includes items like tuition, fees, books & supplies, living expenses, and loan fees. As a medical student, you will likely not have the time to work while enrolled in classes. Your COA will include items like living expenses (housing, food, transportation, and personal expenses). 

The Cost of Attendance is the average estimate of expenses, as well as the maximum amount that you can request in funding. In some circumstances, a budget increase may be available. These circumstances must fall into the federal guidelines for funding. Please contact the Financial Aid Manager for additional information.

In September 2023, The Kent State University Board of Trustees approved a game-changing tuition revision for the College of Podiatric Medicine, making quality education more accessible than ever.


Starting from the Spring 2024 Semester, tuition for both in-state and out-of-state students will be reduced significantly respectively.

In the coming weeks, the Office of Financial Aid will be releasing the updated COAs for the Class of 2024-2027.


The COA for the Class of 2028 will be released after KSUCPM’s Advisory Board Meeting in March 2024. The Class of 2028 can expect tuition rates neighboring

  • $32,095 for in-state students
  • $42,832 for out-of-state students
