Tuition & Fees
USAT strives to set tuition and fees that are affordable, such that the recent graduate is unlikely to become inundated by a mountain of debt, and can therefore anticipate beginning their new career with zero or minimal outstanding educational debt. In order to accomplish this objective, USAT locks the tuition rate in place on the day of matriculation for the remainder of the student’s academic career at USAT. In addition, all fees are clearly spelled out in the letter offer of admission, and are honored by the University thereafter assuming uninterrupted study. Moreover, there are no hidden fees, special examination fees, or other unanticipated University fees applied after official matriculation. This enables students to better plan and budget for their educational expenses. This tuition policy is uncommon among most educational institutions; many of them will increase tuition periodically during the course of study.
Application Fee: $125.00 Non-refundable.
Matriculation Fee: $600.00 This fee is to be paid by all students after an offer of acceptance is received, and prior to the start of instruction. Once submitted it will assure the seat is reserved until the first day of class. This fee is non-refundable.
Tuition: $5,490.00 per 16 week semester for basic sciences, and $5,490.00 per 12 week block of clinical training. Note: clinical training fees do not include individual hospital fees for costs such as application or mentor reimbursement costs.
Graduation Fee: $900.00 payable by all students. This fee is for the MD or PhD first diploma costs, $300.00 per each additional diploma awarded. This fee includes the cost of academic regalia rental and reception for up to 4 guests.
Late Fee: $100.00 for each incident.
Student Medical Malpractice Insurance: Students are required to obtain their own student medical malpractice insurance policy and provide proof to the university. This will then be provided to the clinical rotation location prior to the student starting each rotation. Policies coverage should have a maximum of $2M/incident and $4M/aggregate.
Dissection Laboratory Fee: The Anatomy Lab fee is set at $600.00 per lab experience. This fee includes the issue of scrubs, gowns, masks, instruments, parking, continental breakfast and lunch. Students must be preapproved and prepaid for the lab, and must be in good standing with the University. Camera and cell phones are not permitted in the anatomy lab during dissection classes. All medical students must attend at least one comprehensive dissection lab prior to the start of clinical training modules.
Technology Fee: $500.00 one-time fee, payable by all students. This fee includes the costs of the webinars, electronic media, software and digital record keeping.

The University of Science, Arts and Technology, Montserrat offers several financing options for incoming and current students. Students and applicants are encouraged to find a financing option that meets their individual needs and budgets from the following options:
1. USAT Lock in Tuition Rate Once a student has matriculated, the tuition rate in place on that day as cited in their letter of acceptance will not increase during the student’s active enrollment, assuming continuous enrollment. This is a unique financing advantage available at USAT.
2. USAT Interest Free Payment Plan is set in place at the time of enrollment, until graduation. Individual payment plans can be discussed with the finance department at the time of acceptance into the University.
3. Canadian Citizens A number of Canadian Banks also provide a line of credit to cover educational expenses for Canadian Citizens who seek to further their medical education abroad. Contact your bank for further information on these programs.
4. Walden University Second Degree On-Line Program USAT has partnered with Walden University to bring our students the opportunity to earn a second related degree and further enhance their academic credentials upon graduation. Walden had a broad range of second degree options, including the Bachelor of Science [BS] in Healthcare Management, the Master of Healthcare Administration [MHA], Master of Public Health [MPH], Doctor of Public Health [DPH], Doctor of Philosophy [PhD], and others, all of which can also be earned at USAT in a similar simultaneous degree program. Through this partnership, USAT students can take advantage of a USAT discount, and preferred admission process, in additional to participating in Walden’s Federally Insured Student Loan Program, which also can provide funds for tuition, fees, and accomodations. Many USAT students have taken advantage of this unique opportunity while completing their medical studies at USAT. In addition, academic credits earned at Walden can be transferred to USAT at the same level originally earned at Walden University, and can contribute to additional USAT credentials by way of transfer credits and an advanced academic standing for eligible programs.
Students are encouraged to find a financing option that meets their individual needs from the above options. Why spend more than you need to? You will only have to pay it back later in your career.
