As stated in the UMMC Bulletin, the Medical Center reserves the right to increase or modify tuition and fees without prior notice subject to the approval of the Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning.
Estimated Additional Expenses
In addition to tuition, fees, health insurance, and professional association dues, students should be prepared to spend approximately $3700 the first year and $1500 the second year for necessary books, supplies, and uniforms.
Some books may be available in digital format. Students are required to have a computer/device to access books and perform additional tasks. This cost is factored into "Educational Supplies" above for the junior year.
To ensure that you have a computer/device that meets minimum standards to function with UMMC platforms, it must at least function at the following levels:
Note: Your device needs to allow you to both type and write using an electronic pen/pencil. You will use your device to perform the following tasks:
We do not recommend any thin client devices such as Chromebooks or Google books.
Students may be required to travel to off-campus clinical rotations. Therefore, students should be prepared to provide their own transportation and other incidental expenses during these clinical affiliations.
Please note that the Histotechnology curriculum is designed to be sequential (i.e., all courses for each semester are prerequisites for courses in subsequent semesters). Students are not allowed to withdraw from a single class without withdrawing from the entire program. When a student becomes interested in withdrawing from the program, the UMMC Bulletin provides details regarding the institution's withdrawal policy and related tuition refunds. Additionally, withdrawal dates are highlighted on the academic calendar provided on the School of Health Related Professions webpage.
