  • Approximately $400 for the SRJC skills lab supplies fee. This one-time fee paid by each student, pays for all of the supplies needed to learn how to become a Phlebotomist; such as needles, syringes, lab tubes, tourniquets, gloves, gauze pads, etc. This fee varies by semester, based on supplier cost fluctuations.

  • The cost of purchasing uniforms, shoes, etc can vary depending on where they are purchased, and the size. It is highly recommended that the student purchase 2 full sets of scrubs (2 scrub tops and 2 scrub bottoms). The uniforms are worn every week in the skills lab, and every day during the externship. The total cost for 2 complete sets of scrubs only (not including scrub jackets or shoes) ranges from $115 to $150. See the "Uniform/Dress Code" webpage for more detail. 
  • The cost of getting all the health requirements done (physical exam, titers, vaccines, etc) prior to entry to the program, varies greatly depending on insurance, co-pays, and from provider to provider, and is impossible to list here. Please see the "How To Register" webpage, and the Phlebotomy Student Handbook for zero-cost and/or low-cost resources.
