Tuition/Estimated Expenses

» Tuition & Fees

In addition to paying tuition the student should be financially prepared to have a physical examination which includes an eye examination and a two step Tb mantoux test each year. The hepatitis B series is highly recommended prior to initiating patient care but is optional the first year. The sophomore clinical sites require this vaccination so students should be prepared to initiate this process before that time. The student will also incur the following expenses (these are approximate costs):
