Pass-Through Fees

Pass-Through fees may be increased or changed at any time. Pass-Through fees are defined as fees collected by the College from the student to pay for specific expenditures associated with the program. Examples include, but are not limited to, assessment, testing, background checks, and other resources provided and/or required by external third-party entities. Vendors periodically increase their costs and this cost is passed on to the student.

Tuition, fees and other charges are under review and remain subject to change at any time. Any one that has registered will owe additional funds and any regular payment plans already set up will change automatically.
