Transportation Costs

A reliable vehicle is required for the program. All students are responsible for arranging their travel to and from the clinical site. Owners are responsible for travel liability for themselves and riders in their car, as well as any expenses incurred for gas, tolls, meals, and housing to and from assigned supervised experiential learning sites, and professional meetings/conferences. Students using public transportation assume personal responsibility for their safety.

For additional scholarship and FAFSA information, contact the Office of Financial Aid Questions about financial aid and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application.
