BSP kicks off with JumpStart on Monday August 14, 2017, at 9am and culminates with the completion of the spring semester in 2018. As a result, BSP has a low cost structure since the cost is built into that for attending SLU, except for the 10-day JumpStart prior to Fall Welcome. For JumpStart, it is reasonable to budget for an average of $150-$300 (plus miscellaneous expenses, transportation, parking), depending on your current residence.
In terms of JumpStart housing, the cost depends on whether you are a "commuter". A commuter is one whose residential address is within 50 miles of campus. If you are a commuter and choose to stay in the residence hall for JumpStart, then the cost is $230 for double occupancy. This option may push one's costs towards $500.
