*Fees effective for the December 27, 2018 start. 

 

1 All diploma program students, with the exception of Vocational Nursing, must pay a $25 nonrefundable application fee upon enrollment. Vocational Nursing students and all Associate degree program students must pay a $75 nonrefundable application fee upon enrollment.

2 Fees vary by program and include items such as customized uniforms, classroom consumables, Spanish Medical Terminology resources, administrative and technology fees.  Fees also cover campus safety resources including training activities, acquisition and maintenance of security systems including, but not limited to, security cameras, access control and emergency broadcast systems.  For clinical and degree programs, it also includes fees associated with health and background screenings, test preparation, examinations, licensure and certification. 

3 Includes books, laptop computer, digital or electronic course materials, and other supplies for which students have the right to opt out and purchase from other sources. ACC is able to offer these books and supplies, including digital or electronic course materials to students below competitive market rates. Opting out does not require the school to provide you with an alternative delivery method and you will be responsible for obtaining all required course materials. Students that choose to obtain or purchase books and supplies from other sources must do so by the 7th day of class. If the course material is not available from any other source but the institution, students will not be able to opt out of those required books and supplies.

As of January 1, 2015, the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) assessment rate will be zero ($0) per $1,000. Therefore, all institutions required to collect STRF assessments must stop collecting STRF assessments from students.

You must pay the state-imposed assessment for the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) if all of the following applies to you: 1) You are a student, who is a California resident, or are enrolled in a residency program, and prepay all or part of your tuition either by cash, guaranteed student loans, or personal loans, and 2) Your total charges are not paid by any third-party payer such as an employer, government program or other payer unless you have a separate agreement to repay the third party. Payments made to STRF are nonrefundable.  You are not eligible for protection from the STRF and you are not required to pay the STRF assessment fee, if either of the following applies: 1) You are not a California resident, or are not enrolled in a residency program, or 2) Your total charges are paid by a third party, such as an employer, government program or other payer, and you have no separate agreement to repay the third party. 

The State of California created the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) to relieve or mitigate economic losses suffered by students in educational programs who are California residents, or are enrolled in a residency program attending certain schools regulated by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE). You may be eligible for STRF if you are a California resident or are enrolled in a residency program, prepaid tuition, paid the STRF assessment, and suffered an economic loss as a result of any of the following: 1) The school closed before the course of instruction was completed; 2) The school’s failure to pay refunds or charges on behalf of a student to a third party for license fees or any other purpose, or to provide equipment or materials for which a charge was collected within 180 days before the closure of the school; 3) The school’s failure to pay or reimburse loan proceeds under a federally guaranteed student loan program as  required by law or to pay or reimburse proceeds received by the school prior to closure in excess of tuition and other cost; 4) There was a material failure to comply with the Act or BPPE within 30 days before the school closed or, if the material failure began earlier than 30 days prior to closure, the period determined by the BPPE; 5) An inability after diligent efforts to prosecute, prove, and collect on a judgment against the institution for a violation of the Act.

5 Total program cost does not include transportation costs to and from externship or clinical sites. This cost is the student’s responsibility. The schedule of total charges for a period of attendance and the estimated schedule of total charges for the entire educational program are listed above.
