Tuition, Financial Aid, and Student Resources

We understand that many applicants to our Genetic Counseling Program may have questions regarding financial aid.  At this time, we are able to offer reduced tuition to each student during two semesters.  Once these savings are taken into account, the total tuition cost for the two-year BU Genetic Counseling Program is currently $65,000.  The Financial Aid Office at Boston University School of Medicine is available to assist students in identifying sources of financial support and tuition remission, including graduate and research assistantships, fellowships, and federal loans.  For additional ideas to help defray the costs of tuition, please email gcprog@bu.edu to receive our “Financial Aid Information” sheet.

The BUSM Office of Housing Resources is available for information regarding housing, transportation, and Boston neighborhoods.  In addition, they provide resources to help students get settled into Boston: http://www.bumc.bu.edu/ohr.

The Student Guide to Living in Massachusetts is provided by the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s Citizen Information Service:   http://www.sec.state.ma.us/cis/cisbsb/cisbsb.htm.
