Program Fees

The program fee is $1,500.

If you require room and board, we offer participants an optional housing and meal plan at an additional cost. The fees for this optional plan will be posted as soon as they are available. You will stay in campus housing in a single room in a residence hall. While the room is private, the residence hall will have a shared bathroom and kitchen. Dining options are available on campus, however are more limited during the summer. 

Please note if you are an Ithaca College residential student, it may be possible to extend your stay at an additional cost in your existing residential hall room or apartment (residents of a Circles Apartment are not required to move), however this is not guaranteed and will depend upon its location. Additionally, while it may be possible to remain in your location initially, you may be required to move to a different location at some point during the residency.
