TUITION

Tuition is set by the University of Utah and fees are an estimation on average of what graduate students report. Some students seek financial assistance through scholarships and financial aid, which are not part of the fee and tuition estimates on this page.

CMP students are required to register for approximately 36 credit hours the first year and 28 credit hours the second year, depending on the chosen course of study. Tuition rates for nutrition graduate students are available through U of U Financial Services. Be sure to look under Health Sciences Nutrition as rates are different for each graduate program. You may also use the Financial & Business Services Tuition Estimator and the CMP Curriculum to estimate tuition and fees per semester.
