*Totals may vary depending on student’s home Faculty, please see here for more information.

**Totals may vary as non-instructional fees will be prorated for the Spring term rather than Fall/Winter, and if you chose to opt out of the dental and health plan. Note that rates are subject to change. In the event of a discrepancy between the official rate and the rates published, the official rates shall prevail.

These costs are based on current 2018/19 tuition rates. There is no international differential fee charged for international students.

Students applying for the Spring I or Spring II sessions are required to pay a $250 nomination fee to secure their spot in the program and to secure their course selection. This is included in the total fee amounts above. 

Students who are accepted to the Winter School in Cortona do not pay the nomination fee but are required to pay a $500 non-refundable accommodation deposit to secure their space in the program. This deposit will be applied against the accommodation fee.
