Tuition Costs, Scholarships & Financial Aid
Tuition for NYLSC varies depending on location – please see the Enrollment Application you received in the mail for your specific tuition amount. Tuition includes all housing, program materials, breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Students will need money only for incidentals (phone calls, snacks, etc.).
Transportation to and from home and the conference location is not included in tuition.

To protect and safeguard the investment parents and students make in program tuition and travel costs, we strongly recommend that you take advantage of our Tuition and Travel Protection Plan offered through Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company. This valuable coverage reimburses for expenses due to late or cancelled flights, replacement of lost luggage or personal items, baggage delays, illness or injury, medical expenses and many more items.
