In addition to the comprehensive fees, students may also have indirect costs such as housing allowance, food allowance, books & supplies allowance, and miscellaneous costs that are all built into a student’s cost of attendance (COA). COA amounts were developed to establish maximum financial aid allowances for typical students. Students are highly encouraged to establish a budget, reduce expenditures, and borrow via student loans in incremental amounts to help limit their educational debt.
Professional students will also be charged for Student Health Insurance – click for more information on this insurance plan, how to enroll or how to waive it. You are required to have proof of health insurance and are responsible for any expenses incurred to meet this requirement.
Housing and Board Allowances are for students living off-campus. Should on-campus housing be available and if a student signs up to live on-campus, then these allowances will be replaced with actual housing and dining plan charges. Please notify your Financial Planning Counselor if this applies to you. For students living on-campus, information on housing tiers and their additional costs can be found at www.highpoint.edu/residencelife/housing-tier-information/
Students are responsible for all costs associated with their personal transportation to clinical rotations. Students are responsible for all living costs and should be aware that some clinical rotations occur outside of the immediate High Point region (within 2 hours) and therefore the student may choose to seek short-term housing opportunities in other areas.
Please note that your cost of attendance can be increased by expenses related to short-term housing, charges for health insurance, and/or meal plans by term. Please email your Financial Planning Counselor if this applies to you.
