Tuition and Fees
Tuition for the 2013 Career Discovery Program is $2,985 and includes a kit of basic studio supplies. Please note, after you arrive, it will be necessary to purchase some additional supplies for your studio. Depending on availability, the cost of a single room is $1200. Meals and miscellaneous costs are not included. Students may use University Health Services on a fee-for-service basis. Health insurance is not offered through the University. Athletic facilities are available on campus and passes may be purchased before the start of the program for $150. Please contact the Program Manager for more information.
A nonrefundable application fee of $50 must accompany each application. If admitted, decisions are due within two weeks. The tuition charge of $2,985 and housing charge of $1,200 (if applicable) are due upon acceptance of the offer of admissions.
Participants who wish to withdraw from the 2013 program will be refunded tuition and housing costs according to the following schedule: withdraws on or before June 7, 2013 — 100% refund; withdraws on or before June 14, 2013 — 50% refund. After June 14, 2013, no refund will be given.
Final payments for the program must be received by May 24, 2013.
A limited amount of need-based financial aid is available to a small number of students each year. Financial aid takes into account many factors; however, as a guide, if the applicant’s and parents' (if appropriate) combined adjusted gross income exceeds $40,000, an award is unlikely. Career Discovery financial aid is not federally subsidized and is available to U.S. citizens and permanent residents only. International students are not eligible to apply.
Financial Aid applications are not submitted online, but should be mailed to the Career Discovery office by April 30, 2013 or earlier to the address below. Please Note: Financial Aid applications will not be reviewed if a complete program application has not also been submitted. Late financial aid applications will not be considered.
