Midwestern University is proud to educate the next generation of healthcare professionals. In light of recent events surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, Midwestern University has decided to freeze its tuition rates for the upcoming 2020-2021 academic year in order to best serve our students, the community, and the nation’s public health crisis.

Kathleen H. Goeppinger, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Midwestern University, made the announcement to the campus community on March 25, 2020. “I know that many students are very concerned about the cost of their education while facing the uncertainty of how COVID-19 will impact their families. Midwestern University had anticipated a tuition increase in the 2020-2021 academic year to cover the ever-increasing cost of maintaining all services on our campuses while facing increased costs from many utilities, vendors, and suppliers,” Dr. Goeppinger said. “I am announcing today that all current and incoming students’ tuition will not be increased in the upcoming academic year. The current tuition rate remains in effect in the upcoming 2020-2021 academic year.” The decision to freeze tuition was ratified by the Executive Committee of the Midwestern University Board of Trustees.

Midwestern University is a private, not-for-profit graduate and postgraduate educational institution specializing in degrees in the health sciences with colleges located on two campuses. Recently, the University announced a new Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) Program that will begin in the fall as a dual degree paired with a health professional degree, or as a stand-alone 2-year degree (available for 2022 enrollment). The M.P.H. Program will prepare students to address increasingly complex public health issues through an interdisciplinary approach that integrates human, animal, and environmental health practices.
