  • There is a separate non-transferable, non-refundable registration fee of $75 due at the time of online registration. This fee will not be applied to any associated program fees. This fee is independent of the Co-Op Program Fee.
  • A non-refundable seat deposit of $192 for District residents ($256 for non-DC residents) must be paid by August 1st.  The seat deposit will be applied to the total program fee, leaving a remaining balance of $1,728.00 for DC residents and $2,379 for non-residents to remit from September – May. Seat deposits are non-refundable.
