What does it cost?

$100 of the non-refundable enrollment deposit fee (EDF) is allotted to the Preview Program, which covers the student and up to two parents/guests.

Estimate my Preview costs.


Overnight housing & two meals - $50 (Due at time of check-in)

Each student will be housed with another first year student in a double-occupancy residence hall room. Dinner on day one and breakfast on day two are included in the overnight fee. Lunch on day one will be provided by Preview.

Family members and guests

Guests beyond the initial two must pay $25.00 each at Preview check-in for program participation.

Overnight housing & two meals, per person...Additional $50 (Including all children regardless of age)

Dinner on day one and breakfast on day two are included. A single family member or guest attending Preview will be housed in a double-occupancy residence hall room with another single family member or guest of the same gender. Family members will be housed on separate floors than the students. Please Note: No refunds are given after you receive your room key at check-in.

For participants who stay overnight in the residence halls, certain meals will be included. Additionally, there are several eating establishments on campus in the Bone Student Center. Please bring money for meals not included.


Please plan to pay family or guest and overnight costs at check-in on your confirmed Preview date. Preview does not accept credit or debit cards, but does accept cash, checks, and money orders.
