Paramedic Program This is called a caduceus (kah-du'-se-us)

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.
