Cost of Attendance Diagnostic Medical Sonography
Cost of Attendance
Earning a Bachelor’s degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography is an excellent investment. In addition to the cost of tuition for both pre-sonography and sonography courses, students accepted to the sonography program should budget for the cost of books, uniforms and required health and background checks. Many of these costs are accrued during the first semester of the program and we encourage students accepted to the sonography program to plan in advance for these additional start-up fees.
Students should also be prepared to pay a graduation application fee and costs for Convocation and Commencement regalia (graduation gown, honors cords, etc). In addition, upon completion of the program, there will be costs associated with taking the sonography credentialing exams offered by ARDMS and ARRT.

The total cost of books during the 3-semester sonography program is between $1,000 and $470. However, this cost is not spread evenly over semesters. Students should prepare for a book cost of approximately $1000 during the first semester of the program and between $200 and $400 in the following four semesters (excluding summer semester).
Course/Lab fees range from $825 – $1,050 per semester (excluding summer semester).
Radiology students are required to wear uniforms while in laboratory class and while participating in clinical. Please budget between $40 and $70 during the first semester for uniforms to wear over the course of the radiologic sciences program.
HEALTH REQUIREMENTS AND BACKGROUND CHECKS
Radiology students are responsible for costs associated with meeting health requirements and for getting a background check and drug and alcohol testing each semester.
Many students are eligible for federal financial aid.
