Fees and costs

Fees stated are subject to change and are calculated based on a fee-per-credit basis. Course credits for the nursing program are approximately 12–17 credits per semester. For details on semester credit loads, please see the program outline. (Note that LPN access students start the program in Semester 3.)

As a nursing student, you will also need to cover the costs of textbooks, uniforms, instruments, and other supplies. The majority of books and supplies are purchased in the first semester and additional textbooks will be required throughout the program.

Please note that parking fees are required at some clinical placement agencies.
