2 There is no application fee for the D.C. Link or Global Competencies Programs. A deposit is due at the time of application. This deposit is applied towards the program fee and is only refunded if the applicant is not accepted into the program.


U.S. Students

Costs to U.S. students are usually offset, in part or whole, by financial assistance from their institution, their state, The Washington Center and/or other sources. Please review the refund and cancellation policies.

International Students

Tuition for the Washington DC program is the same for both U.S. and international students. The application fee for international students is $125, which covers shipping and processing for the J-1 visa package. International students attending U.S. institutions who do not need a J-1 visa from TWC pay a $60 application fee.


International students attending the D.C. Link Program pay $250 non-refundable deposit.

International students must pay 50% of tuition fee as soon as they are accepted, and the remaining 50% before the start of the program. Please be sure to review the program refund policy and the housing refund policy.
