All applicants pay a $25 application fee, whether they are admitted to SBC or not. This fee is non-refundable, and is charged when the student’s application is received. This fee is NOT included in the cost of the program.

Students who are admitted into the program are charged a $250 processing fee when they are admitted. This fee counts toward the cost of the program, and is non-refundable.

Students may choose one of two payment options: Pay in Full, or the Payment Plan. Students choosing Pay in Full are charged the full cost of the program (including optional extended hotel days) when they are admitted. Students choosing the Payment Plan make one payment per month. The amount of each payment depends on when the student is admitted:

  Payment month:
Admitted: February March April May June
February $650 $650 $650 $650 $650
March $812 $812 $813 $813
April $1,083 $1,083 $1,084
May $1,625 $1,625
June $3,250


All extended hotel amounts are charged with the student’s first payment.

For example, a student who applies and is admitted in March, chooses the payment plan, and opts for one extended hotel day makes the following payments:

  • On application: $25 application fee
  • On admission: $250 processing fee
  • March payment: $912 ($812 March payment plus $100 for one extended hotel day)
  • April payment: $812
  • May payment: $813
  • June payment: $813

All payments are charged prior to the end of the month. The full cost of the program must be paid prior to July 1, with no exceptions.
