*The insurance covers the student throughout his/her clinical and techniques training at AOMA. This is an estimated cost and may vary slightly from year to year.
**The finance fee is for those students paying tuition on a monthly payment plan only. If monthly payments are more than 5 days late there is an additional $25 late fee. The $50 finance fee is charged each term to those students not paying tuition in full at the time of registration.
AOMA reserves the right to withhold the transcripts or diploma for any student or graduate with an outstanding balance or unreturned library books and/or other AOMA property.
In addition to tuition, there are a number of other expenses that students should anticipate, including textbooks, an herbal sample kit, a lab jacket and clinical tools such as stethoscopes and needles. The cost of books and clinical supplies averages about $150 per term, with book costs slightly higher the first term of any given year.
