Notes on Required Charges

The Residential Dormitory Damage Deposit is required to offset any charges incurred for damage to a student’s room, furnishings, or pro-rated shares of extraordinary damage to common facilities in the dormitories. Families may be charged if a student’s room is left dirty or in a state of disarray. Parents are responsible for any damage beyond the deposit. If there is no damage or balance due, the Damage Deposit will be refunded to the person responsible for billing by late September.

The Day Student Damage Deposit is required to offset any charges incurred for pro-rated shares of extraordinary damage to common facilities in the buildings and dormitories, which day students can access thought the day. Parents are responsible for any damage beyond the deposit. If there is no damage or balance due, the Damage Deposit will be refunded to the person responsible for billing by late September.

Extended Day Opportunities

EXPLO New York offers an extended day program for day students. We encourage day students to stay for evening events every night (as long as they have a ride home!) so that they can glean as much of the EXPLO experience as possible. Day students may eat dinner at the program and then participate in evening activities until 8:15 p.m. each night.

Meal Fee: Students staying for dinner are charged a small additional fee to cover dinner and/or breakfast. This fee is deducted from the student’s Trips + Sundries Account.


Rates and Discounts

All fees are in U.S. dollars.

There is a $75 application fee for all international student applicants to cover the cost of student interviews, language assessments, additional staffing, and additional costs.

Multi-Session Discounts: Students enrolling in multiple sessions of EXPLO receive a discount of 10% off of base tuition for each additional session (discount applied to the lower-priced session(s)). Students enrolling in our 1-week day session at EXPLO Boston will instead receive $20 off each 1-week session enrolled after the first session. Contact our Admission Office for additional details.

Sibling Discounts: If two students in a family are attending an EXPLO program(s), each student will receive a discount of:

  • $200 per 3-week residential session
  • $100 per 3-week day session
  • $150 per 2-week residential session
  • $75 per 1-week residential session

If one of the siblings is attending our 1-week day option at EXPLO Boston, please refer to the EXPLO Boston tuition page for details about our EXPLO sibling discount for 1-week day students.

If more than two siblings are attending EXPLO programs, each child will receive one sibling discount (the largest discount for which the student is eligible).
