(1) The College of Nursing sets the fee amount for the skills lab based on usage. Since the level and frequency of use is less for
undergraduates, the fee is less. The higher graduate/masters fee includes suture laboratory supplies and reflects the additional usage
costs for the Advanced Health Assessment Course students.

(2) The College of Nursing is proposing a change in the Progression Test fee from $200/semester to $250 semester. This is due to a
change in the way students will progress through the program. In the past, BSN students were enrolled for 5 semesters, but moving
forward they will only enroll in 4 semesters. Because there is no reduction in coursework, the cost of ATI will remain the same.
Students were paying $200/semester for 5 semesters for a total cost of $1,000. The change will result in students paying
$250/semester for 4 semesters for a total cost of $1, 000. There is no additional cost to the student and is revenue neutral.

(3) Although not a fee, this deposit is due upon acceptance as a reservation of enrollment prior to actual registration. It is
non-refundable, but will be applied to the first semester tuition if the applicant enrolls within a year. The non-refundable deposit of $300
for Physician Assistant applicants accepted into the College of Health Professions is due within three weeks of official notification and
will be utilized to hold a position in the cohort.

(4) The Student Liability Insurance in the College of Health Professions covers students in a wide range of programs. The higher liability
for paramedic students and those in the new physical therapy program is reflected in their Malpractice Insurance fees.
As of Fall, 2016, the fee for College of Nursing PhD students will be the same College of Nursing fee as for non-PhD students.
