Published tuition rates are preliminary rates that are subject to change by the Board of Trustees.
Final rates are approved by the Board at the Board Meeting preceding the semester for which the new rates apply.

*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 email your Financial Planning Counselor if this applies to you.

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 and therefore the student may choose to seek short-term housing opportunities in other areas.

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.
