Program Costs

The University of Florida is proud to offer one of the most competitive tuition rates among online programs in pharmacy. If you have any questions, please contact us at

Program Tuition Estimate

Tuition for the graduate certificate is $650 per credit plus fees. The Model-Informed Drug Development certificate is $7,800 plus fees.

Breakdown: 12 credit hours x $650 = $7,800 (plus fees).

Students pay per credit hour. Take your time based on what is affordable to you, and space out your courses to fit your budget. The University of Florida does not offer payment plans, but you can create your own payment plan by determining how many credits you can pay for each semester. Because our classes are completely online, students pay the same, low/in-state tuition regardless of location. There are no additional travel costs or living expenses required.

All students enrolled in for-credit courses will pay a Gator One Service Fee. The $5 fee will be issued at the beginning of every fall and spring semester. More information this fee can be found here.

As per the Florida Board of Governor Regulation 8.002 (2.a.2.), you are invited to view our self-supporting programmatic tuition and fee comparison.
