After many years of near-stability in programming prices, I've implemented a two-tier system for both graduate students and faculty. I price to be affordable and accessible, but to preserve that model, I need to ask those who have more resources to pay a reasonable amount more. I operate on the honor system for the most part. If you have significant financial constraints or need to budget costs over multiple funding cycles, contact me about payment plans or other alternatives.The prices below are effective 1 April 2024, and are subject to change without notice. All prices are in US$.

Graduate Students

Students who have not defended their dissertations and are paying for their own participation are in the Graduate 1 price tier. Graduate students whose participation in these activities is directly funded by a department, college, or university are in the Graduate 2 price tier. As always, prices are for a full 15 week term of service unless indicated otherwise.
