Ross University School of Medicine Cost
ross university school of medicine Tuition
“How much is medical school per year? How much does Ross Med School cost?”
These questions are among the many questions that prospective students ask. In fact, thinking about medical school tuition can be enough to stop many students from applying, since many are overwhelmed by the cost of medical school tuition. Medical school tuition can seem like a lot of money, but medical school is a major investment in your future. To help offset med school costs, scholarships and financial aid are available to eligible students, intended to fill any gaps that may exist between your family’s ability to afford educational expenses and the cost of attendance. Typically, students at RUSM finance their med school costs by combining family resources, federal student loans and scholarships and loans from other sources.

MEDical SCHOOL COST – RUSM MEDICAL SCHOOL TUITION
MEDICAL SCHOOL TUITION POLICY ON FAILED COURSES
Students failing any course in any semester will be required to repeat that course and will be charged the full rate of medical school tuition for the remedial semester. Questions relating to our medical school tuition policy should be directed to the Office of Student Finance.
1st Semester Tuition Back Guarantee (Effective May 2022 Semester)
New, first-time matriculating MD students who complete semester 1, including final exams, and do not advance to semester 2 because they earned a failing grade in a semester 1 courses/modules required for advancement are eligible for the guarantee. Students eligible for the guarantee receive a reimbursement of tuition based on the following formula: tuition assessed minus institutional scholarships or grants received. Please note, only tuition is included in this guarantee, any fees and other expenses and/or charges are excluded.
MEDICAL SCHOOL TUITION REFUND POLICY FOR WITHDRAWALS
A withdrawal occurs when a student's enrollment is permanently discontinued or, in some cases, even temporarily interrupted (see note below). Withdrawal may be official (when the student notifies the dean in writing) or unofficial (without written notification). The effective date of withdrawal is normally the student's last date of attendance.
If a student withdraws, Ross University School of Medicine’s tuition and charges corresponds with federal loan entitlement regulations, which are based on the period attended:
If a new student withdraws prior to the start of the first semester, no tuition charges are due.
If a continuing student withdraws prior to the start of a semester, no tuition charges are due.
If a student withdraws during the first 60% of a semester, tuition charges are directly prorated based on the portion of the semester that has elapsed. (As semesters are normally 15 weeks in length, med school tuition is prorated for withdrawals during weeks 1 through 9.)
If a student withdraws after the first 60% (i.e., after completing the 9th week) of a semester, tuition and other charges remain due.
Note: Although a leave of absence may be authorized in limited circumstances, failure to return to the University from a leave of absence is considered a withdrawal as of the last date of attendance. Please note that a leave of absence and an academic leave of absence are two different statuses. (For an explanation of an academic leave of absence, refer to the section on Academic Policies in the Student Handbook). Additionally, under federal regulations, a leave of absence must be requested and approved in advance, may not exceed 180 days, and may not be granted within 12 months of a previous leave of absence. An interruption of enrollment status that does not qualify as a leave of absence is considered a withdrawal as of the last date of attendance.
MEDICAL SCHOOL SEAT DEPOSIT
Seat Deposit: A non-refundable deposit of $1,000 is required to reserve a seat in the class. This deposit will be applied to tuition costs.
- Initial Seat Deposit ($500): An initial deposit of $500 must be made within two weeks of acceptance to reserve a seat in the class.
- Final Seat Deposit ($500): A second seat deposit of $500 is required four months prior to enrollment.
- Deposit deadlines will change if acceptance is granted within four months of the term.
All fees are listed in US currency and must be paid in US dollars. All checks must be drawn from US banks.
Please note: If either seat deposit is not received by the deadline, the seat for the term will be forfeited.
CURRENT STUDENT FAQS
The new tuition model is only available to new students effective with the May 2022 semester. While the newly publicized tuition is reduced, please note that the total cost of the program remains the same. We have simply shifted administrative fees out of the tuition itself to better align with how other medical schools reflect their tuition and fees structure. In turn, this will make it easier for aspiring students to more accurately compare tuition and program options available to them, while keeping all fees separated out from the tuition. The total cost is unchanged for current students.
Additionally, now is a great time to look into the Empower Scholarship Fund (ESF), which strives to help keep education within reach by providing financial support in the form of scholarships to qualifying current students, especially those with the greatest need and who have established a successful academic track record.
- ESF is a 501(c)(3) public charity that supports student success by awarding scholarships to current and continuing students at Adtalem Global Education institutions, including [American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine (AUC) OR Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM)].
- For more information on what scholarships are available through the Empower Scholarship Fund and the application process for the Spring 2022 Cycle (open from January 3, 2022 – March 18, 2022), please visit: https://www.empowerscholarshipfund.org/2022-spring-scholarships.
Any student that is returning from a leave of absence, temporary withdrawal, or reinstated will follow the tuition model under which they originally enrolled. Any student that was withdrawn, dismissed, or placed in a status where the student was no longer part of the university and needed to reapply and now returning will fall under the new pricing structure, but is not eligible for the First Semester Tuition Back Guarantee.
