Room fee may vary depending on the variations in amenities (single room / double room / suite / location). Board rate may vary depending on the Meal Plan option selected.

 

Clinical Affiliate housing and other clinical fees (i.e. living, transportation expenses) cannot be predicted since they are dictated by students’ housing choices and clinical placement assignments.
