*Tuition does not include the cost of the Washington D.C. or International Residency airfare. These costs vary with the economy and student travel choices. To facilitate student planning, we generously estimate $6,000 to cover both.

During the international residency, participants must have access to a lap top and subscribe to an Internet Service Provider (ISP) account.
