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 obtain financing for this program. Most students obtain personal or family loans to help pay for the program. Tuition for the program is allowed to be paid in three installments to Fairview at the designated dates and may be paid via checks or credit card.
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. This must be renewed if it expires prior to graduation
