Program Costs

Students in the Washington Program pay Notre Dame tuition and a Program Fee equivalent to Notre Dame room and board. This fee covers housing in DC and program costs. 

Students remain eligible for financial aid but should check with outside scholarships before committing to participate in the Program.


Because students cook for themselves, they receive a stipend to cover the cost of food and incidentals. With careful budgeting, students find the stipend meets their needs.


Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from DC. Students will receive a stipend that will provide the funding to ride subways and buses.
