Program Cost Estimate
The following is a good faith estimate of
the tuition and fee expenses typically
incurred by students enrolled in the
Monroe Community College Paramedic
Program. Tuition is calculated on the
basis that the program is comprised of
courses totaling 37 credit hours.
The current tuition rate of *$105/credit
hour is determined by the Board of Trustees.
However, College policy limits chargeable
costs to $1250 per semester for *NYS residents.
The potential exists for the rate to change
during the course of a paramedic program.
Other fees established by the institution could also change during the course of a paramedic program.
