Radiography :: Estimated Cost

This is an estimated list of some expenses that should be anticipated, if accepted into the program. Only tuition and books are usually covered by financial aid funds. The Radiography new student orientation is held in the summer to discuss and answer questions about these items.  Students are responsible for choosing the provider of their medical care and expenses vary accordingly.  Students are responsible for laundering of uniforms and their own transportation to facilities utilized for clinical experiences.  VWCC does not offer student housing.  The college does not guarantee job placement upon completion of the program.

Note: Payment of tuition is on a semester by semester basis according to the number of credit hours enrolled in.  The total estimated tuition is based on the 70 credit curriculum.  It does not include any costs for prerequisite courses (Algebra I, Algebra II, and sciences/lab) or other developmental classes identified by placement test as they vary by student and cannot be determined until application is made.  The VWCC Radiography program is a restricted admission program.
