Financing Your Studies

Although BME PMP students are self-funded and not eligible for school, university, or faculty funding support that provides a tuition waiver, there are various options to help fund the master's degree.  In addition, Purdue continues to do our best to keep tuition and fees low for all students and the reasonable cost of living in the area makes our PMP a real value investment. 

Cost of Attendance


Purdue Student Employment

Our professional master's students can seek hourly paid campus jobs such as course graders, campus offices or food services to help supplement your finances.


Students who secure internships are almost always paid so that salary can help fund the master's degree as well. Our students secure internships in a variety of diverse companies but some examples of those companies are: Abbott, Apple, Applied Medical, BD, Biomerieux, Cook Companies (Cook Biotech, Cook Medical, Cook Research, MED Institute), Kimberly-Clark, Medical Murray, Merck, Regeneron, Roche Diagnostics, Zimmer Biomet, Zwift


The Division of Financial Aid is excited to introduce ScholarshipUniverse, a new tool that makes finding and applying for both Purdue scholarships and external scholarships easier.
