Tuition and Fees
The cost of the CESSI 2017 8-week program is $4,800*. This includes the cost of UW-Madison assessments for use of campus facilities (student services, recreational facilities, etc.). The fee does not include the cost of textbooks or living expenses.
* Exception: UW-Madison undergraduates who are classified as resident or Minnesota reciprocity for tuition purposes follow regular UW-Madison summer 2017 fee schedules.
Housing, Books, and Incidentals
The cost of required textbooks will vary between the different languages offered at CESSI, but students should plan to spend roughly $200 for textbooks. Summer housing and food costs can vary greatly in the Madison campus area, but a frugal student could safely budget $2,000 for housing and meal costs for the summer.
Please see our Housing page for more information on housing options in Madison for summer 2017, and also the Financial Support section below for additional funding opportunities at CESSI. Continue reading
