Allied Health Comprehensive Charge

The allied health comprehensive charge is relevant to students who are admitted to the B.S.N or A.A.S. Physical Therapist Assistant programs. Its purpose is to cover various expenses like labs, simulations, testing, and clinical experiences, preventing any unexpected fees from the University throughout the program. The allied health comprehensive charge applies once a student is accepted to the program and begins the coursework required for the major, which is typically in the junior year.

What is NOT included in the Comprehensive Charge?

We have made the Comprehensive Charge as truly comprehensive as possible to cover the academic needs of all students. Some costs vary too much to be included, however. The following charges are separate from the Comprehensive Charge:

  • Room charges increase above the standard room rate if you select a private room or privileged housing. Learn more about student facilities.
  • Board (meals) isn’t included in the Comprehensive Charge. You’ll need to select the meal plan that’s right for you.
  • Books generally cost $300-500 per semester. This cost is also not included.
  • Travel costs to Belgium, NYC, VA Shakespeare, or other travel courses are also not included.
