Other Costs

Textbooks - The cost of textbooks varies depending on if you buy new or used, or rent. The Palm Beach State College Bookstore helps students get the best prices. Students also are required to purchase reference manuals.

Technology - As online learning is a major component of our Health Information programs, you will need access to a computer with an Internet connection.  View online specifications. You will also be required to purchase subscriptions to online learning environments to complete simulated lab activities in various health information system software programs.

Program screening - Prior to enrolling in the HIM 1800C Health Information Professional Practice course for the Health Information Technology A.S. degree, students must complete a background check, physical examination and drug screening. The cost of these screenings is the responsibility of the student.
