Biomedical Sciences (MS and Accelerated MS)

Students in the Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences program complete foundational coursework in the first year and then progress to one of several second-year degree concentrations. Students who successfully complete the foundational (first year) curriculum and elect not to continue in a second year concentration may receive a certificate of graduate study (CGS) as a terminal award. At PCOM South Georgia, students who meet specified academic success criteria will have the opportunity to complete an accelerated master's program (MS in Biomedical Sciences - Preclinical Sciences) during the summer term. Students who do not meet the minimum requirements for the accelerated master’s program will have the option to receive a CGS or pursue a second-year concentration as part of the MS in Biomedical Sciences program.

Tuition Notes

Students are charged tuition and school fees each term. If students are paying any portion of their tuition out-of-pocket, they must make payment directly to the PCOM Bursar Office by each term's tuition due dates.

When student loan and scholarship payments disburse to PCOM, they first pay toward a student's tuition and fee charges. Students then receive any remaining funds as “refunds” to help them meet their personal living expenses. Read more about disbursements and refunds.

Tuition rates generally increase by about three percent each year.
