Additional Information Regarding Clinical Experiences
Students are expected to travel outside of the tri-state area for all of the clinical experiences. Costs incurred for travel, housing, tolls, food, parking, etc. are the responsibility of the student. In addition, students are responsible for health and safety requirements such as fingerprinting, required by most clinical experience sites. Students may use Federal or Alternative Educational Loan funding to help with the miscellaneous costs related to clinical experiences. Contact the Financial Aid Office for further information.
