In addition to the tuition & fees listed above, you may be charged laboratory fees, individualized instruction fees or other course related fees.


Laboratory Fees

Certain types of courses require that you sign up for both a lecture class AND a related laboratory class (for actual hands-on skills training, practice, experiments and practical application of what you learn in lecture). Many of these lab classes involve the use of special facilities, expensive equipment, costly materials, supplies, etc., and so for this reason, you may be charged an extra lab fee to help cover such costs. Lab fees for each class will be listed in the Schedule of Classes printed each semester. Courses that have a lab will be assessed a fee of $5.00 for each 16 hours of laboratory time except for the following courses and others which may not in the catalog.
