The application for the MEPN program is listed as a Master’s Degree program under “Nursing Science – Community and Population Health Concentration.”
We strongly encourage interested applicants to review our annual MEPN Guide to Applying to better understand the application process and required components. The guide for the next application cycle will be available in 2024, but applicants can review the 2023 MEPN Guide to Applying to better understand the application process and required components. Please note that the MEPN Guide to Applying is updated each year for current deadlines and requirements.

Graduate Tuition & Fee Schedule
All tuition, fees, and charges are subject to change without notice, and the University may impose additional tuition and fees. Consult the University Registrar’s website for the most up-to-date information.
For estimated annual costs, please visit UCI’s Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships for an estimated budget.
Nursing students have additional supplemental costs associated with completing clinical requirements for licensure and should plan accordingly.
If you need help to pay for your studies, you may be eligible for several types of financial aid.
Visit UCI Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships to find out more about financial aid and scholarship options.
Current MEPN students are automatically considered for need-based fellowships within the School of Nursing so long as they complete a current FAFSA or California DREAM Act Application. A third of the total Professional Degree Supplemental Tuition revenue collected each year is returned to students in these need-based fellowships. Current students within the School of Nursing are also invited to apply to school-specific fellowships each year. We encourage eligible students to complete the FAFSA or California DREAM Act Application on time each year in order to be eligible for student loans and other financial opportunities.
Additionally, please check the UC Irvine Financial Aid office’s database of external scholarships.
