School of Medical Laboratory Science - Tuition and Financial Aid

Tuition and Fees

The projected tuition for the clinical year is $3600.00. The program charges a lab fee of $600, due one week in advance of the program start date. Tuition for the clinical year is $3000, due in two installments, $1500 at start of the program and $1500 after completion of six months in the program. A student who withdraws or is dismissed from the program will receive no refund of tuition payments previously due. Tuition is paid directly to the program except for specific universities who require their students to pay tuition to them. These universities reimburse the program a portion of the tuition collected. The student is responsible for any tuition not covered by the university payment. The program will retain any overpayment for tuition. Contact the program director for further details.

Textbooks and references are purchased by the program and loaned to the student for the program year. Books are returned at the end of the program.

The student is responsible for providing his or her own health insurance, meals, travel expenses, clothing, school supplies and housing during the program year. The student is also responsible for any fees related to sitting for a national certification examination upon successful completion of the program.

The student will also be required to purchase and maintain professional liability insurance during the program year. The program director will provide details prior to the start of the program. Students will be asked to provide evidence of healthcare coverage or to sign a release of liability for health care costs.

Financial Aid

Students who are registered through a university are eligible for financial aid at the university. The MLS program is not eligible for federal student loan funding. The program director may be able to help identify alternate sources of assistance such as scholarships, scholar loans and loan repayments plans.
