Student Fees

Workshop Fees

(The fees for 2020 have not been determined yet, but should be similar to 2019). The fees for the 2019 workshops were $425 per five-day session, which included tuition, residence hall room, one $50 meal card and most supplies. We also offered a three-day mini-workshop for Sportscasting, which cost $285 per session and included the same amenities listed above.

We also offer between-session stayovers for $25 per night, which includes residence hall room, supervision by workshop staff and some recreational opportunities. This option is for students who choose to stay for both five-day sessions and want to stay in the dorm in between.

HSJI offers a commuter fee of $285 for local students living at home. Meal cards are not included with this fee, but you can add a $50 meal card when you register if you’d like. On-campus dining facilities accept cash and credit/debit cards as well as the campus meal card.


We offer full refunds of institute fees, less a $60 non-refundable processing charge, if we are notified of a cancellation at least two weeks in advance of the workshop’s beginning. After that, refunds will be made at 75 percent at least one week in advance; 50 percent by the first day of workshops; no refunds after first day.
