(1) Laboratory fees in the College of Health Professions are set on a credit hour of enrollment basis with the following exceptions: (a) Physical Therapy charges a $125 lab fee during the fall and spring terms. (b) Physician Assistant Studies charges a laboratory fee of $125 for summer, fall and spring terms.

(2) The Student Liability Insurance in the College of Health Professions covers students in a wide range of programs. The higher liability for students in the physical therapy program is reflected in their Malpractice Insurance fees.  For FY21, students in Physician Assistant Studies will not be charged for malpractice coverage.

(3) The College of Health Professions sets the Standardized Patient Fee amount based on required usage of standardized patients.

(4) The Respiratory Therapy ‘voucher’ fee provides funding to the student when it is time to sit for his/her registry exams while still in school.  With the voucher, the student would only need to enter a code in order to sit for their exam.

(5) The Credit by Examination fee would apply to College of Health Professions courses for which a student demonstrates competency or equivalency in the subject matter.  This would be similar to a CLEP exam.  The fee for Credit by Examination would be 1/2 the per credit hour rate of the course in which the student is seeking credit.

(6) 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 applicants enrolls within a year.
