Below are the estimated costs for students in the 5-Year Master of Physician Assistant (PA) Program. These costs are based on the 2021-2022 academic year. Tuition, room and board, and other fees are subject to change annually. The Gannon University Board of Trustees approves the tuition and fee structure for the following academic year in February. The room estimates provided for the first four years of the program are based upon double occupancy campus housing. Room and board costs vary based upon student preference. Books are not billed by the University, however estimated costs per semester are provided. Travel, housing, and parking during the fifth/graduate/clinical year of the program vary based upon clinical site location and are the student's responsibility. Additional indirect costs for each semester should be considered including personal expenses.
Students in the PA Program will receive an individualized financial aid package from the University. Many of the PA majors receive a 50% tuition scholarship and select, qualified applicants may be eligible to compete for a full-tuition scholarship. Financial aid awards are applied to the costs in the first four years of the program. The Gannon Financial Aid Office has a Net Price Calculator available on its website (http://www.gannon.edu/Financial-Aid/Future-Student-Net-Price-Calculator/) to assist students in planning for their educational costs.
#The accredited phase of the program begins the Spring semester of the third year. Tuition and fees for the accredited phase of the program include seven semesters (Spring of the third year, Fall and Spring of the fourth year and Summer, Fall, Spring, and Summer of the fifth year).

In addition to tuition and fees, students should expect the following costs during the accredited phase of the program. These expenses are deemed integral to the students' professional development, such as medical equipment and white lab coats. Please note these are estimated expenses.
For 14-week semesters, a percentage of tuition charged will be refunded as follows: 100% during the first week; 80% the second week; 60% the third week; 40% the fourth week; and no tuition refund thereafter. For fees, a 100% refund will be given during the first week; and no fee refund thereafter. For students using deferment plans, the percentage of refund is applied to the amount of tuition charged, not the deposit paid.
Refer to the back of your semester bill concerning the refund policy for sessions less than 14 weeks.
There is no financial adjustment for credits dropped between the flat rate (12-18 credits).
After the first week of the semester, there is no financial adjustment when a student drops from full-time to part-time.
Gannon adheres to the Federal Refund Policy for all students who receive Title IV Federal Funds. If a student completely withdraws from the University within the first 60% of the semester, all or a portion of federal aid may be returned. These policies are outlined in the online and print catalog or can be obtained by contacting the Financial Aid Office or the Department of Education.
