There is no financial aid for Corporate and Continuing Education classes such as Phlebotomy. Payment is due in full at the time of registration.
This class will cost approximately $250, not including books, immunizations, and other course requirements. A full list of other requirements will be emailed to your CPCC email account upon your acceptance into the Phlebotomy program.
• In order to participate in clinical education experiences at health care facilities, students are required to submit results of a NC state and/or national criminal background check at their own expense. As a condition of admission, students will be required to verify that they are United States citizens or otherwise legally authorized residents of the United States.
• In addition to tuition, lab fees and textbooks, this course has additional costs that include uniforms, personal protective equipment, physical examinations, immunizations, and drug screening. Please read the attached handbook for information and forms.
The required forms [Medical physical, Immunizations, Urine Drug Screening Results, Authorizations, and Criminal Background Check Request] are submitted prior to the first class meeting. Detailed instructions are included in the Phlebotomy welcome email that is sent to all who have been granted permission to register. The forms are not part of the registration process.
Previous students, who have a name change due to marriage or divorce, MUST bring their social security card and current driver’s license to CPCC student records and have the student record updated.
Students who have been granted permission will be sent an email notification within 2 weeks of Spring/Fall registration start date. This email will include the Phlebotomy Medical Packet that will need to be completed by a physician.
