Some health profession programs at Oklahoma City Community College will be adding an additional fee next semester.
The Vice President for Academic Affairs, Greg Gardner, said the fee was not across the board for OCCC students.
Gardner said the fee of $5 would only apply to select amount of health profession programs like the EMS program, which uses equipment that costs $25,000 and up.
Deborah Myers, the Nursing Program Director, said the fee would be per credit hour meaning it would charge for each lab that requires equipment.
She said the fee would affect five health profession programs next fall.
