Other Program Costs

Other program costs can vary depending on the course and each individual’s personal circumstances.  Some of those costs include:

  • Books and Course Materials
    • Each faculty member attempts to keep costs as reasonable as possible while also making sure necessary materials are utilized for each course.
  • Lodging
    • This is dependent on one’s travel distance. Some students live within the local area and do not need local accommodations, while others travel for the courses.
    • This is a weekend program that meets Friday evening through Sunday afternoon.
    • Each course meets over three weekends.
    • UMES has a hotel on campus, the Henson Center, with reasonable rates for students.  In addition, the Organizational Leadership program has made arrangements with several hotels in the Salisbury and Fruitland area for discounted lodging (some including breakfast).  Click here for more about accommodations.  
  • Transportation to and from campus for course weekends.
  • Personal expenses, which may vary significantly from person to person. 

Total costs may vary significantly from person to person depending on individual circumstances.
