Every student (college majors or interns) pays the annual “operational” fee; which is $3,500 for the 2016-2017 LTD program.
In addition to the operational fee, college/university students have the benefit that their full tuition costs for their 30 hour of credit is covered by a scholarship from Forest Springs however, these students do pay their institution’s annual room and board fee to their school.
The student fees do not cover meals when the dining hall is closed (about 65% of meals are provided). Students are also personally responsible for their own clothing and basic supplies for the year – this could be budgeted at about $100 per month.
An estimate for interns would be $3,500 plus personal expenses with a total of about $5,000- $6,000. Family expenses can add about $2,000-$3,000 for the year.
Married students are highly encouraged to go through the program together – both being considered as full student status.
