Books and Instruments
First-year Audiology students can expect to spend approximately $1,000 for their books and instruments. Required and recommended books may be purchased through the bookstore located on the University’s Elkins Park campus. In addition, it is necessary for Audiology students to purchase a number of instruments, which are available through the University’s bookstore.
In planning for living expenses, students should consider room, board, transportation, medical, dental and personal expenses. The University provides a comprehensive health care program option. Second and third year students need to consider the costs relative to required off-campus clinical clerkships, which begin in the spring term of the second year and continue through the spring term of the third year. Clerkships are generally in the Philadelphia metropolitan statistical area and students are responsible for their own transportation to and from clerkship sites. Generally, the fourth-year externship is not in the Philadelphia region and students are responsible for their own relocation to the externship site community, daily transportation to and from the externship site, and housing during the externship experience.
