Day Students:


Students who live locally or who have friends/family to stay with in the Burlington area are welcome to attend the program as Day Students. Day Students commute to campus each day and return home each evening and thus do not pay the Room & Board portion of our fees.

Depending on the program, most class activities begin at 9am and end at 5pm, Monday through Friday, though some programs have occasional evening or weekend commitments, as well.

Meal Plan

Day students are charged a Meals and Activities fee of $55 per week which provides them access to the cafeteria for lunches. Day students also have the option to purchase dinners during their time at our program; dinner tickets can be purchased in our SOCAPA office. The meal plan includes breakfast, lunch and dinner Monday - Friday. Each weekend, students are responsible for purchasing three of their own meals depending on our off-campus excursion schedule, but typically lunch and dinner on Saturday and lunch on Sunday.

Extra Curricular

Day students are encouraged and welcome (but not required) to attend any of our structured evening and weekend activities at no extra charge.
