School Fees and Expenses
This is a list of what you can expect to pay during your stay at the School.
(Rates and fees are subject to change without notice.)
Fees for ASCSA Members
All Members are assessed fees at a rate determined by the Managing Committee of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens. At present, fees are $220 per month for Regular Members and Student Associate Members and $330 per month for Senior Associate Members. One-half of this fee is waived for students, faculty members, and graduates of Cooperating Institutions as follows: $110 per month for Regular Members and Student Associate Members and $165 per month for Senior Associate Members.
Fees for Accompanying Spouses and Other Significant Persons Residing in the School Facilities
If a relevant accompanying individual qualifies for Associate Membership and requests it, the Director will admit him or her to that status, and he or she will be charged fees as an Associate Member: $110 per month if a Student Associate; $165 per month if a Senior Associate Member. If he or she does not qualify for Membership or does not request it, then they then will be admitted as a “Residential Affiliate” at the flat rate of $75/mo. In this case he or she will not receive the privilege of having a desk in the library or a locker in the downstairs in the Blegen Library.
It will be the obligation of a member who is requesting residence for a spouse or significant other to bring this policy to his or her attention, to see that those who desire to be appointed Residential Affiliate inform the Manager of Loring Hall and that those who desire Associate Membership apply online for membership.

Members should make sure of sufficient funds to cover expenses in Greece before arriving. Expenses on the required School trips will probably total at least $3,000. Meals in Loring Hall can total as much as $4,500 for the year, depending on how many meals are eaten at the School. In addition, one should anticipate travel and housing expenses when away from Athens in the spring, whether on an excavation or individual research projects. Incidentals, such as laundry, cleaning, books, and entertainment, are also extra. Christmas and spring travel will, of course, vary greatly from individual to individual.
