Full program tuition $1,425 plus accommodations:   We invite all who are able to do so to pay the full tuition rate.  By doing so, you make it possible for us to offer scholarships to others, while also covering the direct cost of your stay here and contributing to our year round operations.   Interest free payment plans for 6 months are an option for those who choose this tuition level. 

Discounted program tuition $1,200 plus accommodations:  If the full tuition is unworkable for you, please pay the discounted rate if you can.  By doing so you contribute towards the cost of your being here and everything it takes to keep DDL operating year-round.

Discounted tuition plus payment plan $200/month:   If having 6 months to pay makes the discounted tuition possible for you, please choose this interest free option.   The payments would be $193.33 per month for tuition; if you add lodging to the payment plan it would be an additional $27.50/month in a hut or cabin.  If you select this payment plan option, after finishing your registration, please call the registrar at DDL to set up the payment schedule.
