Estimated program expenses
We make every effort to keep program costs reasonable. As the program runs continuously for 24 months, we encourage applicants to review their financial resources carefully and anticipate expenses realistically.
Due to the rigorous nature of the curriculum, you should not expect to be employed during the program. If, despite this recommendation, you decide to work, it must not cause you to miss class attendance, clinical rotation schedules or required program events. Doing so may result in unexcused absences, which may be grounds for academic penalties and/or dismissal from the program.
Classes may be held in evenings and/or on Saturdays if necessary. During the clinical year, you will, at times, be assigned to clinical sites outside of the immediate Springfield area. You will be responsible for the costs related to any necessary out-of-area travel and housing.
