MCPHS Advantage Scholarship Program Terms and Conditions For Students Who Graduate After December 2021


In order to be eligible to receive an MCPHS Advantage Scholarship, a student must have graduated from a full-time MCPHS degree program. “Full-time” is defined as 12 credits per term for undergraduate programs and 9 credits per term for graduate programs.

Included Master’s Programs

A 50% tuition scholarship will be awarded to all eligible students who are admitted to one of the online master’s programs listed below.

  • MBA in Healthcare Management
  • Master of Public Health
  • Master of Science in Regulatory Affairs and Health Policy
  • Master of Health Sciences
  • Master of Science in Clinical Research
  • Master of Science in Clinical Management

MCPHS Advantage Scholarship Admission Requirements

An eligible MCPHS Advantage Scholarship student must also meet the master’s program admission requirements, which can be accessed through the links below:

(For the MBA in Healthcare Management Program, while management experience in healthcare or a closely aligned field is preferred, MCPHS students who are eligible for an MCPHS Advantage Scholarship will not be penalized for lack of management experience in a healthcare or an aligned field.)

Students may apply during the regular admission cycle. A completed MCPHS application, including all required supporting documentation, must be submitted no later than the application deadline for the applicable admission cycle.

As with all MCPHS programs, the master’s programs that are included in the MCPHS Advantage Scholarship program have a limited number of spaces and admission is competitive. MCPHS strongly encourages students to submit a completed application early in the admission cycle because decisions are issued on a rolling basis throughout the admission cycle.

If a student is accepted to an MCPHS Advantage Scholarship master’s program, but there is no space available in the given term, upon the University’s receipt of the enrollment deposit, the student’s admission will be deferred to the next term that has space availability.

Upon admission to one of the included master’s programs, a student who is eligible for an MCPHS Advantage Scholarship will automatically be granted the scholarship.

Academic Performance

To maintain eligibility for an MCPHS Advantage Scholarship, satisfactory academic progression in the master’s program is required. Students who fail to maintain satisfactory academic progression and/or who are dismissed from their programs and later readmitted will not be eligible to receive MCPHS Advantage Scholarship funds for future terms, but will not be billed for the cost of past terms.

A student must complete the master’s program within thirty-six months of beginning it to be eligible for the 50% tuition scholarship. The graduation deadline will be extended only for students who take a University-approved leave of absence.

A student who fails to meet his or her graduation deadline will not be eligible to receive MCPHS Advantage Scholarship funds for terms beyond his or her graduation deadline, but will not be billed for the cost of past terms.

Additional Information

MCPHS Advantage Scholarships cover tuition for the master’s programs, but do not cover fees or the cost of books or equipment or any other non-tuition costs.

An MCPHS Advantage Scholarship may not be applied retroactively for courses that a student has already taken that are also required for the master’s program, although credits already earned for such courses may be applied in accordance with a master’s program’s curriculum requirements. A student will not be reimbursed for the tuition cost of courses taken before beginning the master’s program.

A student must be, and remain, in good financial standing with the University to receive an MCPHS Advantage Scholarship.

A student may receive only one MCPHS Advantage Scholarship.

As with all MCPHS programs, the terms and conditions of the MCPHS Advantage Scholarship program are subject to change by the University unilaterally in its sole discretion and without notice and are not intended and may not be construed as a contract or guaranty of any kind, express or implied, with respect to applicants or potential applicants. In the event of a change in such terms and conditions, students who have been admitted to an MCPHS Advantage Scholarship master’s program and who remain in good academic and financial standing would continue to receive their MCPHS Advantage Scholarships through completion of their respective degrees.
