    Paying tuition for out of network electives?

    Advertisements



    Hi. I was curious, has anybody tried to get out of paying tuition for out of network electives? or at least get some money back from SGU for it. It seems to me that SGU pays in network hospitals about $400 a week per student to rotate through the hospital, but if you schedule your own out of network elective, I am pretty sure SGU does not pay this to the out of network hospital. Why are we continuing to pay for tuition for the time when we do electives that is out of network? Thanks

    Jet fuel doesn't pay for itself...

    When US college students go abroad to (insert "exotic" western european country here) to learn another culture (read "get drunk with other american college students abroad"), they pay the same ridiculous tuition to their college 40-50K. How much of that do you think goes to the actual University? Id be surprised if its 1/10 of that. A carib school is not going to be more reasonable.

    because you are choosing not to stay within the affliated hospitals, pure and simple....
    and the tuition you pay to the unaffliated hospital goes to the unaffliated hospital...you need to try to convince them into not makin you pay.

    mods... there are a couple of threads (this one and the barnabas ob one that belong in the clinicals section...could you pls move them?
