MSL Participation Costs

The cost to participate in the MSL is:

  • Enrollment Fee: $500 (non-refundable deposit which is due at the time of enrollment - must be paid in order to be considered enrolled)

  • Participation Fee: $5,400

  • TOTAL: $5,900

Payments can be paid by check or credit card.  Once enrolled, you will receive an invoice for any remaining balance.  Invoices must be paid in full prior to scheduling your school Kick-off call, and no later than November 1 of the year proceeding a Spring data collection, or no later than July 1 prior to a Fall data collection.

Cancellation Policy

The low price for this high quality service relies on the efficiencies gained in staffing the study to support a specific number of participating schools.  To support this, monthly decisions are being made based on enrollment numbers to ensure that sufficient resources are available to support the size of the study.  Those decisions rely on accurate accounting of fully enrolled schools.  Once you have fully enrolled, we will proceed with the assumption that you will participate - and we will expect the resources from your fees.  The resources we put forward will be there with a real cost to the project regardless of whether your school ends up actually participating.  As such, we must adhere to the following cancellation/refund policy:

The $500 enrollment fee is non-refundable and is not included in the calculations of any refund below.  Additionally, any discount or scholarship awarded is also not included in any calculation.  All dates noted reflect a 5pm eastern time deadline on that date.
