The Radiation Therapy program is not part of the University of Minnesota and the school is not certified by the USDE for eligibility for Title IV student financial aid. Therefore, accepted students are not eligible for federal financial aid. It is the student's responsibility to contact their financial institutions and complete any paperwork required for loan processing in order to comply with tuition payment dates as designated by University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview. Students may contact private financial institutions and additional information and resources may be located from the Education Connection.
Students are not eligible for refunds on tuition paid in the event of elective termination or dismissal from the program.
Students must have health care coverage through their own personal insurance company and will need to show evidence of Health Care Coverage (Workman’s Compensation does not apply to this program).
CPR certification documentation is required from one of the following: American Heart Association, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency, Cardiac Care Healthcare Provider, or the American Red Cross CPR for the Professional Rescuer or Professional Rescuer Review.
