Project ASSIST is a fee for service program. These fees are based on the student's class status/number of total credits earned.
Students working with the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) should discuss availability of funding with their counselors. Fees are sometimes paid for by DVR if Project ASSIST is discussed in advance and included as a part of the student's Individualized Plan for Employment (IPE).

If students do not have DVR funding, the fee is placed on their student bill after the first month of classes. A student may contact the Financial Aid office to inquire if an adjustment can be made to their financial aid based on the use of Project ASSIST services.
A limited number of scholarships are available each year for students using Project ASSIST and do not have DVR funding. Students who are eligible for these scholarships are notified of the scholarship application process early in the semester.
Project ASSIST fees:
|Freshman/Sophomore (less than 60 credits)||$950/semester|
|Junior/Senior (more than 60 credits)||$700/semester|
