Medical Laboratory Science Program Expenses and Financial Aid at UPMC Williamsport


Expenses include $8,500 program tuition and a non-refundable deposit of $500, applied to the tuition bill, if accepted. Students are responsible for all fees required by the college/university. Additional expenses include items such as textbooks, apparel, classroom supplies and all living expenses. Occasionally students have opportunities to travel to educational programs that may require a small fee.

Students are required to purchase liability malpractice insurance for the period covering the clinical year, at their own expense, unless the college or university maintains liability coverage for students in clinical programs.

All students are required to have the following current (within one year) clearances: 

  • Act 33 PA Child Abuse History Clearance
  • Act 34 PA Access to Criminal History Clearance
  • Act 73 FBI Criminal History Record Clearance

Directions for obtaining either clearance will be provided to successful applicants.

Meals are available in the employee cafeteria. Parking is provided free of charge at designated lots.

For more information, please see the 2024 Student Handbook (PDF) (subject to change without notice).

Financial Aid

The UPMC Williamsport Medical Laboratory Science Program does not participate in state or federal financial aid programs. Students who wish to obtain such assistance may do so through their university by remaining enrolled in the degree-granting university during the clinical year. Scholarship opportunities may also be available.
