Tuition

The cost for the one-week session is $900, which includes course tuition, an air conditioned room and meals, all activities, a STAPH t-shirt, and other materials.

One half of the tuition costs, all cards, and medical forms are due by April 28, 2017.

Students accepted into the Academy must pay fees in full on or before June 2, 2017.

Students should also bring spending money. While spending varies from student to student in such programs, most students would be unlikely to spend more than $50 on laundry, snacks, or program activities.

Students are encouraged to discuss budgeting of money with their parents before coming to the Academy.  The Academy is not responsible for students’ spending choices.

STAPH also provides a “Hall Store” in conjunction with the Joseph Baldwin Academy, which is located near the dining hall.  There they can purchase drinks, snacks, and other STAPH-related items.

A $40.00 room key deposit and processing fee will be required upon check-in to cover lost keys. When you return your key at the conclusion of the Academy, you will receive a refund of this deposit.  Students will be allowed to cash checks at the Cashier Window in the lower level of McClain Hall during normal business hours (Monday-Friday from 8:30 am – 4:00 pm). The Cashier Window is not open on Saturday or Sunday. You may make checks payable to “Truman State University” in $25.00-$50.00 increments.  The Cashier will not cash a single check over $50 in value.
