A comprehensive fee of $5,500 includes tuition, room, "Chinese table" meals, textbooks, audio materials, rechargeable cafeteria cards, student ID, and 24-7 on-site assistance. This fee also covers cost of special lectures, individual sessions, tutorials and extra-curricular activities as well as three daylong trips and two evening cultural activities on weekends. Airport pick-up (on Friday, June 20th) and drop-off (on Saturday and Sunday, August 16th and 17th) is also included.
All other costs, such as all meals outside the "Chinese tables," are paid for by students. Students normally will need $800-$1,000 for living expenses. (This estimation does not include other forms of shopping expenditure though.) Transportation to and from Beijing is arranged and paid for by students. Students are responsible for arriving in Beijing on Friday, June 20, in time for placement and orientation which will begin early the following day. Airfare from the East Coast of the United States is expected to cost approximately $1,500 to $2,000.
