The Department of Physician Assistant Studies provides a good-faith estimate of costs associated with our M.S. program. These costs are approximate and may change without notice.
The total tuition cost for the program = 98 credits x $1100* graduate per-credit tuition = $107,800 (as of September 2014) *Click here for the most current cost per NYIT graduate credit
Medical insurance (required): differs based upon the medical insurance plan. Students should shop around for the best plan for their needs, if they are no longer covered under their parents' plan. Federal regulations prevent this cost from being covered by Financial Aid.
Room and Board: Space is limited in the graduate dormitories located on an adjacent campus. Most PA students live off-campus as it is more conducive for their study habits. To estimate the cost, candidates are advised to browse rental listings (such as Craigslist.com) for adjacent towns such as Glen Cove, Roslyn, Greenvale and Hicksville. Due to the above-average cost of off-campus living in the vicinity, students should prepare for additional costs beyond what is covered by Financial Aid. In addition, Financial Aid will not cover the cost for room and board during the first year summer break.
Books/supplies/medical equipment/Laptop/(approximate total for 3 years): $5,600
Advanced Cardiac Life Support (once, prior to entering clinical year): $285
Basic Cardiac Life Support (once, prior to matriculation): $85
Professional organization dues:
American Academy of Physician Assistants (once for 3 years): $75
New York State Society of Physician Assistants (once for 3 years): $60
Smartphone: cost will vary based on the model and service selected by the student. Students will begin using their smartphones in the second semester.
Transportation: students should budget additional monies for transportation, including tolls to and from clinical clerkships, and parking. This can vary on a case-by-case basis, but is estimated at $3000 annually, while on clinical clerkships.
