Financial Aid

Students in fee-based programs can apply for various forms of financial aid to help cover their educational costs, including federal financial aid, scholarships and loans. Because the Executive MHA program is part time, financial aid is disbursed accordingly. For more information about financial aid, visit the fee-based programs page of the Office of Student Financial Aid website. If contacting the Office of Student Financial Aid, it’s helpful to share that you’re inquiring about a fee-based program.

Fee-based students are not eligible for tuition exemptions or University grants.

See additional information on applying for federal financial aid from the Department of Health Systems and Population Health.


The UW MHA program offers scholarship awards to current Executive MHA students. These scholarships honor and support students who embody the program’s values of diversity, service and leadership, and who demonstrate knowledge of and ability to apply such values within the program, and the health care profession’s scope of practice. The program also offers scholarships to students in financial need. Learn more about Executive MHA Program Scholarships.
