Your Investment in the JD/MBA

Miami Herbert is committed to making its degrees accessible to all qualified candidates. Paying for a graduate degree shouldn't stop you from reaching your goals. Here you’ll find basic information about this specific program’s costs, and how you can finance this degree.

Tuition for the JD and the MBA degrees is each paid separately. The Business School tuition is determined by the cost per credit. Tuition at the Law School is set at either a full- time semester rate for those taking between 11 to 17 credits or a per credit rate for those taking fewer than 11 credits. While enrolled, students should consult with the academic program director from both the Business School and the School of Law to plan their course selection.

Students in the JD/MBA program may be eligible for the Federal Work-Study Program and scholarships offered through the Business School and/or scholarships offered through the School of Law. Scholarships awarded from the Miami Herbert Business School apply strictly to MBA tuition, while scholarships awarded from the School of Law apply strictly to JD tuition.

The JD/MBA costs provided below are approximations. Please be aware that the published tuition rate and fees may increase from one academic year to the next and once updated, will be published to the Graduate Professional Financial Assistance website.

Student Health Insurance

All international students must enroll in the University-sponsored health insurance program. Domestic students will automatically be enrolled in the University-sponsored health insurance unless a waiver request with proof of alternative coverage is submitted by the indicated deadline. For more details on the University-Sponsored Health Insurance and the annual insurance rate, please visit the University of Miami Student Health Services website.

Paying for Graduate School

Understanding how to pay for your education now can help you build the foundation for a better financial future. Here are three simple steps to consider when financing your degree:

  1. Plan Early: Be sure to meet application deadlines. Start saving before you get to graduate school. Consider funding or using education savings (529) plans.
  2. Fill out the FAFSA application: Financial Aid is available to residents and US citizens, helping reduce expense outlays, by offering eligible applicants grants and/or repayable loans. It’s never too early to explore Federal aid.  When doing so, make sure you consider eligibility requirements, loan application deadlines and other implications, such as repayment conditions.
  3. Scholarship opportunities: All admitted applicants are considered for merit-based scholarship opportunities, and candidates are informed of the scholarship decision at the point of admission. The assessment criteria are the same as those used for the admissions decision but at a more competitive level. There is no separate application process for these scholarship awards.

International students are not eligible to receive federal financial aid, which includes Stafford and Perkins loans. However, international students may qualify for private loans if they have a U.S. co-signer.
