Financial Support, Awards, & Assistantships
Your decision to enter graduate school depends on many factors, with the cost of tuition being an important one. West Chester University's Master of Public Health program is among one of the best values in the United States and has the lowest tuition among CEPH-accredited MPH programs in the Philadelphia region. Other pricier programs simply do not compete with the quality of the WCU MPH program, given its cost. In addition to financial aid, employer reimbursement, and other loans, we recommend for students to consider applying for graduate assistantships, scholarships & awards, and seek campus and regional employment opportunities.
