What’s Covered by the Tuition

The tuition for JSA Summer Programs includes tuition for the program, textbooks and all other academic expenses, along with room and board for the student.  During Summer School, students live on single sex floors in university student residencies, generally two to a room.  Meals are eaten in university dining rooms.  Faculty and college-age residents live on campus with students, providing academic counseling and supervision 24 hours a day.

Additional Expenses

Expenses not included in tuition are off-campus meals and entertainment, and transportation to and from the Summer School.  However, staff members will be available at nearby airports to help transport students to campus.  We also assist graduates in returning to the airport at the end of the summer session.  When attending off-campus speakers programs and optional cultural excursions, students are responsible for their meals and any tickets they might purchase for plays, museums, etc.  Georgetown students spend four or five days off campus, while students at our other sessions typically spend 1-3 days off campus.
