This says the cost is $690RD per credit x 16 credits a semester x 4 semesters comes out to $44,160RD per year. Does that sound about right?

Way out of date.
Registration fee is RD$8000 per semester (that is three times a year for a full time student)
Currently, tuition costs are RD$850 per credit. Normal class loads are between 18 and 26 credits depending on what career a person is pursuing. Medicine is at the upper end of that scale. Journalism, Business, Accounting could be at the lower end.
There are also some activities fees and a fee for the student ID that should be worn at all times.

So RD$80,000 [(RD$850 x 22 + Rd$8000) x 3] is more accurate? Plus about RD$15,000 for books and incidentals?

Are the Santo Domingo and Puerto Plata campuses on par academically with the Santiago campus?

that $690 is for a certificate type program for one of their course....I think.

I was reading that.... they offer classes to get things OTHER than a degree.

I used the term certification and I think it only applies to clinic type medical personell.

go to the PUCMM website and select admissions then course offereings... then there is a link to each of the courses and what the classes are.

therer is also a page for fees...

The Licenciatura is the Dominican equivalent of a Bachelor's degree, not simply a license.

my bad...many words that are spelled similarly ( english to spanish)mean the same thing...

my point was to give a reason that the RD690 fee was something other than normal pregraduate credits.

No. POP only offer a few full courses. Santo Domingo does not yet have medicine or some of the Engineering courses. Plus in Santo Domingo there are fewer student services. And I seriously question the academic level of Santo Domingo. I think they give away grades. Yes, I know, I am saying something out of school but no way that out of 36 grads in Economics there were 30 with high honors (Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude and Summa Cum Laude
)
Santiago is the full service campus.
