Experiential Education-Related Expenses:

Students will participate in fieldwork experiences and a doctoral capstone. To participate in these experiences, students will be required to complete appropriate onboarding requirements, such as CPR training, immunizations, physical exam, etc. Costs will vary.

Some of these experiences may also be located outside the Des Moines metro area, which may result in additional travel and/or living expenses during that time. The student is responsible for making these arrangements and for all associated costs.
