Are there additional fees beyond tuition?

2020-12-06T12:05:16-06:00December 6, 2020|

Tuition covers the entire cost of attendance due in order to participate. Aside from tuition (and your enrollment deposit, which is applied toward your tuition), the only additional optional fees are for extended day services and any merchandise offered for sale, like program t-shirts.

The current cost of attendance is maintained on our main enrollment information page. DeBusk Foundation, which provides the leading grant for DECATS, makes it possible for us to keep the cost of attendance as low as possible. As a non-profit academic institution, we depend on grants, tuition and donor generosity to maintain and sustain the operation of the program year after year.

This is different from traditional school, where the same course might be taught all day long, every period. Our innovative schedule maximizes the number of elective opportunities, offering greater variety, challenge and exposure for participants. Sometimes, very popular courses are offered in more than one period. To streamline the request and scheduling processes, we often track those multiple offerings [...]
