Registration Information

Beginning with 2014, we have a new three-tier structure for course fees, to make transparent to you the real costs to BCBS. Course fees have never covered our actual cost of $150 per student per night. We have not increased them in five years. The three-tier system will allow us to continue to offer the current low fee to those who need it.

Our lowest rate, “supported,” will be the same as the current (2013) course fees–well below costs. “Mid-level” gets closer to costs; “Sustaining” covers costs. Choosing a higher tier helps make courses available to all, regardless of ability to pay. Any amount above “Supported” is considered a tax-deductible gift.
