Southwestern College Left Navigation

Approximate Cost

The cost of the vocational nursing program is currently estimated to be about twelve hundred dollars ($1,200).  The greatest direct expense is at the beginning of the first semester.  Textbooks, enrollment fees and uniforms are the major cost items.  Livings expenses, general education textbooks and cost of transportation to class and the clinical facilities are not included in the estimate and are additional major expenses.  Expenses increase in the third semester related to the State Board licensure application and graduation, if the students choose to hold a ceremony.

Some financial assistance is available through the Financial Aid Office.  Applications for assistance should be made in the Financial Aide Office either at the Higher Education Center in Otay Mesa or on the main campus in Chula Vista.
