Student Insurance

Certain risks are inherent in any work involving regular contact with mechanical and electrical equipment. While stringent precautions will be taken to ensure safety, it is felt to be in the interest of all students to provide some measure of insurance protection. A group policy, providing the desired insurance protection, will be maintained in effect by the College and all students will be REQUIRED to subscribe to such coverage.

Computer Use and Technology Fee

For Curriculum students, a computer use and technology fee will be charged each semester.


Campus Access Parking and Security Fee for Curriculum students, charged each semester for Asheville, Woodfin and Madison.

Student Activity Fees

The student activity fee will be charged each semester based upon the number of credit hours taken during the day at the Asheville campus.

Past Due Balances
