The costs listed below are from Summer 2013 and provide a rough estimate of what to expect in terms of costs for Summer 2014.

** Notwithstanding any other provisions of this or any other University publication, the University reserves the right to make changes in tuition, fees and other charges at any time such changes are deemed necessary by the University and the University System of Maryland Board of Regents. More information about summer tuition and fees can be
found at the Office of Summer, Winter, and Special Programs.

 

Optional Components

  • Housing = $861 (approximate cost - actual cost may vary slightly: optional to live on campus - students may also commute)
  • Food = $650 (approximately $25 per day includes breakfast, lunch and dinner and excludes meals covered by the program fee while on trips)

** We strongly encourage you to consider the option of living on campus due to the time commitment of the program and the bonding that takes place between students within the residence halls.  Please consider this option if it is feasible for your situation.  We understand this may not be an option for all students depending on your financial and personal circumstances and participation in CSI does not require you to live on campus. Please indicate your desire to live on campus when you fill out your CSI Application.

Book Scholarship

The Office of Undergraduate Education provides each CSI student with a book scholarship (up to $100) to cover the cost of books for ONE course during CSI. Students have the option to take two courses during the CSI program but only the cost of books for one course will be covered and students will need to purchase the books for their second course. 

Financial Aid

Financial aid is greatly limited during the summer term. Students must be enrolled for summer courses through the CSI program and demonstrate significant financial need per the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to qualify for financial aid during CSI. Students with significant financial need are those who qualify for the Federal Pell Grant.
