Summer Language Program
Tuition and Fees
Non-HDS Students, HDS Nondegree Students, and HDS ThD Students Paying Reduced Tuition
Non-HDS students, HDS nondegree students, and HDS ThD students paying reduced tuition are required to pay the Summer Language Program tuition at registration. SLP tuition for 2013 was $4,925 for anyone other than HDS students taking the course as part of their program. Please note: The 2014 tuition rate will be posted in early February 2014. For everyone participating in the SLP (except HDS ThD students who will be enrolled full-time in the fall of 2014), there is a $50 application fee to be submitted with the application form and a $350 program fee. HDS is unable to provide financial aid to non-HDS students for the SLP.
Full-time HDS Degree Candidates
Full-time HDS degree students who will be enrolled the following fall may participate once in the Summer Language Program and have it covered by normal term tuition. That is, first-time participation will not affect tuition. Fees, however are required: $50 application fee due upon application to the program and $350 program fee due at registration.
Part-time HDS Degree Candidates and Those Approved to Pay on a Per Course Basis
Part-time students and those who pay on a per course basis may participate in the Summer Language Program and have it count toward the requirements of their degree, provided:
- They will be registered in the fall;
- They pay the additional program fee of $350 upon registration (in addition to the $50 application fee);
- They pay additional tuition in the fall equal to normal tuition for two half courses.
The additional tuition paid for the SLP will apply toward these students' overall required tuition (tuition equivalent to 16 half courses for MTS students, 24 half courses for MDiv students, and 8 half courses for ThM students). Fall term financial aid awards may be adjusted to help pay for the additional SLP tuition.
HDS ThD Students Paying Full Tuition
HDS ThD students paying full tuition in fall 2014 are not required to pay SLP tuition or the program fee.
Auditing the SLP is possible; however, all fees and tuition payments apply.
The Summer Language Program can be dropped without notation on or before Monday, June 23, 2014; after that the designation dropped will appear on the student's transcript. For more information on drop deadlines and refunds, please check back in the spring semester.
