CSE does not charge its students the entire cost of their education. The fees listed in this catalog represent only a portion of the annual cost per student. The balance of this cost is borne by gifts from alumni, friends, businesses and industry.
The College reserves the right to change established fees and services, to add additional fees and services and to determine the effective date of such changes without prior notice.

There is a period of two designated weeks during the Christmas break and two designated weeks during the summer months when no student may reside on campus.
All resident students are required to pay a $200 non-refundable deposit to secure a room for the next Fall semester. This payment will be required each year the student is in residence on the campus. Payments can be made with check or money order. No cash or credit cards will be accepted. This $200 payment will be credited to the student’s account as a room deposit paid in advance when the Fall invoices are sent in July. The deposit will not be returned to the student should housing be terminated for any reason. The only exemptions to this policy are the Harney Scholarships, fully funded International Scholarships and the EOF recipients. These students will be required to sign a separate housing contract in lieu of the room deposit.
