Financial Considerations

Starting Fall 2019, the rate for a NEXus course is $865 per semester credit and is adjusted to $577 per quarter credit (NOTE: OHSU is on a quarter system). This fee is intended to cover all associated university fees such as technology, library, or application fees. As with all courses, you are responsible for the cost of your books and educational materials.

NEXus courses may qualify for financial aid. If you are receiving aid and plan on taking a NEXus course, please contact the Financial Aid Office to complete and route a consortium agreement (phone: 503-494-7800 or 800-775-5460).

Registration Deadlines

You (the student) are responsible for meeting the registration and payment deadlines of the institution that is offering the course. In most cases, this will not coincide with OHSU calendar so advanced planning financially and academically is critical.

Academic Considerations

  • Decisions about selecting a NEXus course must be made in consultation with your academic advisor/committee chair.
  • Students enrolled in a NEXus course must meet all course requirements.
  • Students are encouraged to contact the course faculty in advance to ensure that they understand the course requirements (for example, prerequisite courses, vacation periods, on-campus requirements, technology requirements, synchronous versus asynchronous discussions).
