Section 2-160 - Course Fees

CMH EMS Education Manual


Course fees will be established and published with course announcements. At a minimum, 50% of course fees will be due by the first day of class.

Textbook Note: Unless specified below, students are supplied a book to use during the course, but the book is due back in good condition at the end of the course.

Tuition Classification Definitions:

VA Delayed Payment Compliance

CMH will not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, libraries or other institutional facilities, or the requirement that a student borrow additional funds to cover the student’s inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed disbursement of a payment by the US Department of Veterans Affairs.

In other words, once the paperwork is submitted to VA, we consider course fees paid even though it may be some time later that a check is actually submitted by the VA.
