(1) The NAPLAX Prep Course fee is $50 per semester to cover the cost of the RxPrep course.  The RxPrep course is considered to be a much better program which is expected to improve the pass rate on NAPLAX.

(2) The College of Pharmacy is requesting an increase of 5% in our Experiential Education Fee to cover the increased cost of our CORE educational software package.  The College of Pharmacy currently has licenses for the CORE Elms and CORE CompMS modules.  The College wishes to all the CORE readiness module to provide access to a databank of training videos to all students, faculty, and preceptors.  The additional module being added will increase our license fee by $9,000.

(3) Immunization Training through APA of all P1 students is required in order to receive certification. This one-time fee is unique to the College of Pharmacy and is in the spring only.

(4) This College of Pharmacy fee is used to subsidize the current Student Activity Fee funding for professional development activities specific to the COP students.  The college spends about $100 per student on student activities related to their organizations and professional events attendance.

(5) The NiaRx Software licenses being purchased for us by all P1 through P3 students at an annual cost of $55/license for three (3) years starting FY19.  The cost will be spread over 4 years.  NiaRx, is a cloud-based software platform that simulates and electronic medial record (EMR).  With the use of NiaRx, student pharmacists would gain added skills in utilizing an EMR to engage more readily in all aspects of the JMCP pharmacists’ patient care process (collecting data, assessing the overall patient, developing a patient-centered plan, implementing the care plan and monitoring/evaluating its effectiveness).  These skills, as well as familiarity with the basic components of an EMR, are critical for the pharmacy graduate’s application of the pharmacists’ patient care role in all areas of pharmacy.

(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 applicant enrolls within a year.
