A few important items…

SIS is a proud partner of the CCCU. We work closely with many universities in the CCCU to provide accessible financial options for you!  If a prior consortium agreement exists between your school and SIS, your financial options will be dependent upon that agreement.  What does this mean for you? You can work closely with your school to determine your financial aid package for our program. If you are attending a school that is unaffiliated with the CCCU, independent, or does not have an existing agreement with SIS, your costs will look as follows:

Fall 2021 or Spring 2022: 

Summer 2022: 

Summer Internship 2022: 

  • Tuition: $1,250
  • Room & Board: $900
  • COVID CARE ROOM & BOARD DEPOSIT (refundable): $1000**
  • TOTAL = $3,150 
  • Please note: This is an “add on” option for students who will be enrolled in the Spring semester, who are enrolled in Summer Term 1 and do an internship in Summer Term 2, or have participated in SIS in the past. 

Please review our COVID Safety Plan Document to see how we are mitigating risk during this time!
