Program Fees

The program fee covers tuition, room, and a food allowance. It is equivalent to the comprehensive fees for Colby College, and merit-based financial aid is available to ensure that the semester does not cost more than the equivalent classes at your home college.

Financial aid, like student acceptance into the program, is decided on a rolling basis. Applications should be received by February 15th for consideration for financial aid. Please apply as soon as possible to ensure its availability.
