Costs of running the school are minimal because it is virtual. The main costs include:
TA compensation (this comprises >80% of costs).
Software subscription and other tech needs.
A small fee ( under USD250) for full-time students/academics on the Interactive track is applied to offset costs. This fee is adjusted for cost of living based on the student’s location and fee waivers are available for those whose institutions cannot afford the fee. Industry applicants will be charged the full unsubsidized cost of the school.
In addition to student fees, the school is mainly supported by several generous sponsors.
