Other Expenses

Students will incur expenses for transportation to off-campus clinical facilities, parking, and health and liability insurance.  Undergraduate nursing students are expected to provide their own watch with a second hand.  Graduate nursing students are expected to provide their own oto/opthalmascope and a professional quality stethoscope.


"Payment of Student Charges" information is available on the Business Office page.

Checks paid directly to GSON (vs. via Nelnet) that are returned by the bank will be assessed a $30 service charge by GSON. If additional checks are returned by the bank, GSON may require all future payments to be made by Cashier’s Check or credit card.

Financial Responsibility

Payment of student charges must meet due dates outlined on the Business Office page to avoid a Hold placed on their student account which restricts registration and release of transcripts.

Students with a balance of $100 or less may enroll for the upcoming term. The Business Office reserves the right to restrict registration or disenroll students if the outstanding obligation is sufficiently in arrears. Records of final course grades, official transcripts, degrees or certificates will not be released until all financial obligations are paid in full.  No College officer or advisor may relieve students of financial responsibility.
