THE COST: The $500 fee is broken into two components, a $100 tuition fee and a $400 deposit. After attending the full program and following all conference guidelines your $400 deposit will be refunded by check on Saturday morning upon check out. The $100 fee is your final out of pocket cost to attend the program. Almost everything is included, such as your food (three meals per day), 5 nights in a luxury hotel (only two students per room), tuition, materials, and other related costs. While many books may be provided, some are sold at the conference, so you may want extra spending money if you plan to purchase the speakers’ books to be signed.
