Estimated Other Expenses

Lehman College estimates that apart from tuition, fees, and room and board, students should budget for an additional $4,328 per year, allocated as follows: books and supplies, $832; personal and incidental items, $1,660; transportation, $816; lunches, $1,020. International matriculated students who are attending Lehman on a student visa must pay for private medical insurance.

Nursing students registering in clinical courses will have the additional expenses of a uniform, health insurance (unless they are covered by their parents' policies), and malpractice liability insurance. Prior to registration in clinical courses, nursing students also are required to undergo a number of medical tests at their own expense. (For further information, consult the Department of Nursing.)
