    I was not told of an enrollment fee. If you don't have the money, can you set up a payment plan?

    EC does have payment plans. Check out their site (http://www.excelsior.edu/payment-plans) for more information. Which replies are you trying to read? You can navigate backwards through this current threaded discussion with the page links (1, 2, 3, etc.) above and below current posts.

    hey guys,
    I'm also starting the program hopefully this week. I found out today that there's also a tuition fee of 375.00 which does not include the enrollment fee. And once we get into the nursing courses, each credit for a course is 355.00 each. So if I take essentials of nursing and it is a 3 credit hour course, that is 355x3 which is 1065.00 for that course and that does not include the test cost. I have heard that the program is good, but that's a lot of money.

    That is incorrect ... the exam costs are NOT the same as the course costs. A lot of people make the same mistake when they first look at EC's program. The test-out exams, which is what you'll take for the ASN program, are a flat fee, and are not calculated per credit.

    If you go to the EC publications page, you'll see a link for "Fees, Financial Information and Forms." There is a document called something like "How Much Will Your EC ADN Cost?" Download that -- it'll spell it out for you.

    You were misinformed. Each test is 275. That is the fee you pay to test out as a distance learner. It is not times 3. The practice exams are 75. There is an enrollment fee around 900, but that can be broken up into payments.
