(Tuition does not cover student travel costs or room and board.)

Competitive and need-based scholarships are available to cover up to half the tuition costs. Scholarship requests are reviewed on a case by case basis by the program director, Dr. Alex Miller. The scholarships are competitive, so early submission is recommended. If you wish to apply for a scholarship to the program, please complete section #6.

6. Include an explanation of your need and the amount of tuition you will be able to fund and the amount of scholarship you therefore are requesting.

ATTENDANCE POLICY: Successful completion of the CSEE program requires your commitment to attend all scheduled class sessions and complete all assignments on time. Unforeseen emergencies do happen, and for this reason, students are allowed to miss 1/2 day during the 10 month program. Classes are videotaped for these purposes. If a student misses more than the allowed ½ day, they must then attend the missed portions of the residency period(s) with the next year’s class in order to earn the course certificate. By checking the box below demonstrates my understanding of and commitment to the CSEE attendance policy.
