Tuition Costs

You’re in luck, your tuition is paid through a combination of grants and scholarships.

LEAD Venture utilizes the Tuition-Paid model to keep your experience affordable. It’s not that there is no tuition, but that it gets paid through the PT scholarship and other grants.

Room, Board, & Fees

While tuition is paid, there are still costs for room, board, and fees outlined below:

  • Room Deposit: $350 one time refundable fee***
  • Standard program (2 semesters): $7,000
  • Optional Overseas phase: $8,000

***It is non-refundable until after orientation; it then becomes refundable if terms of the housing agreement are met. Room deposits paid after due dates (May 1st for fall enrollment and Oct. 23rd for spring) are subject to a $150 late room deposit fee.

  • Parking Permit Fee: $400/year – Provided on a first come, first served basis for those who have paid the fee.
