Students pay the following fees in addition to tuition: E-learning fee, educational support fee, student health records fee, student records maintenance fee, and a $12.50 per course fee to portfolio nursing courses. (The typical student will portfolio 9 courses, but students from eligible programs may portfolio up to 11 courses.)
