  1. Ground travel calculated at $175/one-way taxi and $60/immersion for campus shuttle
  2. Housing calculated at $90/night discounted rate (including tax and fees) with Findlay Inn for those needing housing. Includes daily breakfast and an increase in cost by $5 each year.
  3. Flights calculated average domestic flight to Ohio, including average bag and change fee. Airports to consider include Detroit, MI, Columbus, OH, Fort Wayne, IN, and Dayton, OH.
  4. Meals & Snacks estimated at $80 per day, assuming the student chooses to participate in planned meals and optional evening activities.
  5. Costs are an estimate and will vary based on the student’s location and individual needs. Costs include anticipated incidental costs associated with the immersion(s) that may occur while participating in these on-campus activities.

Each professional year has associated experiential learning requirements embedded within it, and during the fourth professional year, student learning is scheduled in various pharmacy settings. Efforts will be made to place distance learners within one hour of their home address for their experiential learning. If this is not possible, the student could be required to complete an experiential learning rotation with the program’s Ohio-based experiential education network. Housing and transportation to and from experiential sites throughout the educational experience will be at the student’s expense.
