Students enrolled in Harcum's Nursing, Allied Health and other medical programs will be required to purchase program-specific items for classroom and clinical settings. These may include uniforms, shoes, identifying patches and other clothing and equipment. To determine which items will be needed and approximate cost for all items associated with each program, contact the individual program director.
Students opting to take more than 18 or more credits per semester are charged an overload fee of $655 per credit. This does not apply to students who are required to take more than 18 credits in a semester by their program’s course sequence. Students should check with their individual program directors regarding overloads.
Bills are issued by the Office of Student Accounts and a variety of payment options are available, including Visa or MasterCard and monthly payment plans. Accounts in default will be reported to a credit bureau and a collection agency. Interest at 1.5% per month, collections costs and expenses will be added to the amount due.
First-year resident students are required to make a non-refundable $200 deposit. This deposit will ensure the student a space in the residence hall. After the school year begins, the deposit becomes a damage deposit that is returned based on the condition of the room and all common areas.
New Residential Students
All new residential students must complete a new student housing/dining application and forward a $200 damage deposit to be eligible for a room. Once the student moves into the residence halls this deposit becomes a damage deposit.
The damage deposit is refunded to the student minus any unpaid individual or public area damages bills assessed when the student permanently moves out of the residence halls. If the new student decides not to move into the residence halls, $100 of this deposit is forfeited and the remaining $100 will be credited to the student’s tuition bill. If the new student decides not to attend Harcum, $100 of this deposit is forfeited and the remaining $100 will be returned to the student.
Returning Residential Students
Residence Life coordinates a room lottery process for all returning students in April.
All returning students will complete a returning student housing/dining application and forward a $100 room reservation fee. This fee will be credited to the student’s housing and dining bill in the following fall semester. This fee is forfeited if the student does not return to housing.
Students who wish to park a vehicle on campus must purchase a Parking Permit. Parking Permits may be purchased in the Campus Safety Office, located in Klein Hall.
Students are required to provide proof of medical insurance. If a student does not have medical insurance, he or she is required to purchase the policy provided by the College. The rate is dependent upon the provider.
Information regarding medical insurance is available through the Office of Student Life, Health Center and Office of Student Accounts.
