Other Costs

Other non-tuition costs to keep in mind while budgeting include:


Residency housing is optional. During our January residency, when undergraduates are in the dorms, the program is housed at three area hotels, where we have negotiated a discounted rate (around $100/night, plus tax). In May, the program is housed on campus (around $40/night). If you choose a university-affiliated housing method (approved hotel in January or campus housing in May) , the room and tax may be charged to your university bill, and is fully payable by financial aid.


The program provides an optional pre-paid meal solution which may be added to your university account and paid by financial aid.


Students are responsible for the cost of travel to and from Charlotte.


Each semester there are 15-20 books students are required to read in preparation for the seminars they attend during the residencies.

Financial Aid

In order to keep the cost of the program affordable and to encourage a student community that non-hierarchical, we do not offer scholarships or assistantships.  All full-time students may apply for federal financial aid; the process begins by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at Graduate students should complete the FAFSA at least six weeks prior to their first term of enrollment in the current academic year. Award letters will be mailed within two weeks of The Office of Student Financial Services receiving a clean FAFSA and confirmation that the student is registered.
