Costs, Fees, & Discounts

2022 Program Costs

Program cost fees are determined by the number of courses a student enrolls in (one, two, three, or four courses). The application and course fees structure supports the administrative functions of the program, staff, faculty, workshops, materials, social programs, maintenance of technology benefits, communication materials, and dining and residential access.

Application Fees

Students are required to pay a non-refundable $45 application fee. If this application fee is not feasible for you or your family, please contact us at pcs@uconn.edu to walk you through some options.

The application fee is waived for students who are being sponsored by a PCS program partner organization. Please refer to your program contact for information on how to waive the application fee.
