The DMS program at Idaho State University is a self-funded program. This means all the funds collected through student tuition and fees goes directly to support the DMS program. This also means the cost of the DMS program is different than the regular ISU "per credit" or "full-time" tuition. The overall cost of ISU's DMS program is set to be competitive with regional DMS programs (i.e. Boise State and Weber State).
Cost per Credit
The cost per credit in the DMS program is $277.93 per credit hour. For the 46 credits required for completion of the DMS program, the cost will be $12,784.78.
The tables below shows the estimated cost per semester.*

Note: Because the Diagnostic Medical Sonography program is a self-support program, all students pay the same "per credit" cost regardless of residency. However, employees of the university and their dependents do not receive a tuition break.
*In addition to tuition, the Diagnostic Medical Sonography program has a fee for malpractice insurance per semester. Any additional requirements that would be paid by the student may include: textbooks, background checks, drug testing, CPR recertification, access to the time clocking system, memberships, and registry review and examination.
