Student Assistance and Accident Insurance Fees:

$4.00 per term for curriculum students
$1.00 per term for continuing education students

Student Accident Insurance Plan provides coverage to all registered and enrolled curriculum and continuing education students for covered injuries sustained while the insured student is participating in activities sponsored and supervised by the school. This insurance provides secondary coverage and applies only after the claim has been reviewed by the student’s primary insurance provider.

The Student Outreach Program (SOS) provides coverage to all registered and enrolled curriculum and qualifying continuing education students and is very similar to an Employee Assistance Program. The SOS Program provides students with access to clinicians that can assist with personal or academic-related challenges and concerns. Each eligible student is eligible for 9 counseling sessions per incident per year.

Tuition Exceptions:
Career and College Promise – Students enrolled in High School who are taking college courses pay no tuition, except for continuing education classes. All other fees apply.

Continuing Education Courses



Self-supporting course fees vary. There are no fee exemptions for self-supporting classes. Continuing Education students pay no activity fee; however, usage fees do apply. For more information on Continuing Education courses, visit the Continuing Education web page.
