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 2016–2017 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.

Non-Calvin Off-campus program

You will be charged $300 for a non-Calvin sponsored off-campus program.

Visitor program

Members of the community who are not enrolled as students in any college are invited to register as visitors in most lecture classes. Formal admission to the college is not required; however each visitor must obtain permission from the professor and register with the office of academic services, before attending class. 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.
