Program and Housing Costs

The primary costs include tuition, room and board, and transportation to and from DC. Housing for Spring semester is approximately $4,000, while housing for Summer is approximately $3,000. Tuition for Spring is exactly the same as if you were taking the classes on the CSU Fullerton campus. Living expenses vary according to your lifestyle; recent past DC Scholars have reported between $1,500 (summer) and $2,000 (spring). In summer, all students must register and pay tuition and fees through Cal State Fullerton Summer Session or Open University (for other CSU student participants). Round-trip airfare is approximately $450-$550. 

Similar programs often charge thousands of dollars more. Student should contact dcinterns@fullerton.edu for exact information about costs, available scholarships, and financial support. Although financial assistance is available, interested students are encouraged to prepare and save for such a program and treat it as an investment in their future.
