Building on the Block: Program Fees

The Charge: CC's full academic experience available to all students regardless of income and to free the imagination to do even more with the block, we will eliminate all program fees.

What's Happening: In order to establish a financially sustainable solution that will allow the college to remove all program fees, CC took the first steps toward the goal by awarding additional financial aid to students participating in a block course that included a program fee. In the 2013-2014 academic year, $203,450 was awarded to 78 students who participated in a "block away" course. On average, these awards covered nearly 80 percent of the program fee for the students, who participated in one of 16 programs varying from study in Serbia to Germany to Paris to Chile. The program with the highest participation was in Lyon, France, where 12 students attended a class on contemporary French society taught by Gail Murphy-Geiss, associate professor of sociology. This program funding will continue in 2014-2015.
