Program Costs

Nursing program

Nursing students will be charged Calvin tuition. In addition, a fee will be assessed for each nursing practicum course. The fee for 2015–2016 is $1,300 per practicum course. Students normally take one practicum course in each semester of the two-year upper division major. This additional fee is considered when financial aid awards are made.

Speech pathology and audiology graduate program

There is an additional clinical fee of $900 per semester for the Speech Pathology program. This fee is directly associated with SPAUD 530, 531 & 532. Each time you take one of these courses, you will be charged this fee.

Visitor program

A student may not visit a course or course component that is by its nature practical or applied, such as applied music or a lab. The fee for each course visited is $55 for the semester, which includes campus parking privileges.
