At Startup Institute, we only accept around 18% of applicants, which means seats are limited. As an incentive to get the process kicked off earlier, we offer tiered tuition rates where the earlier you apply, the less you'll pay.
Applying by a given deadline will allow you to lock-in that pricing for the season, even if it takes a few weeks to make a final commitment.
HOW OUR TIERED TUITION STRUCTURE WORKS:
This is the total Tuition if a student applies 2 months prior to the program start date. ($400 Tuition Discount).
This is the total Tuition if a student applies 1 month prior to the program start date. ($200 Tuition Discount).
A $1,000 deposit is required within three days of your decision to commit in order to secure your spot in the cohort.
IMMERSIVE PROGRAM Payment Options:
For the remainder of your tuition, there are two payment options:
- Low Cost & Simple: Pay Upfront
This is the most straightforward, low-cost option.
- Split It: Pay Half Upfront, Half Later
Pay half of your tuition before the first day of classes, and the remaining half before your last day. In this case, your tuition plus an additional $150 administrative fee is paid in two equal installments.
To support our commitment to diversity, excellence, and inclusion in the innovation space, Startup Institute is pleased to offer a variety of scholarships to qualified applicants. Accepted students are eligible to receive up to $3,000 towards the cost of our immersive programs.
