Full scholarships covering tuition, room and board are awarded to each student selected
for the program. In addition, the O'Hara Institute pays for a variety of scheduled
social activities. The value of this scholarship exceeds, and it is independent of
all other financial aid.
Students are responsible for their textbook and travel to and from campus, as well
as personal expenditures. Since the O'Hara Institute is a full-time, intensive program,
selected students may not enroll in other classes or be employed during the time of
the program. Scholarship students are required to live on campus.
The course is divided into two four-week semesters, and grades are awarded for each
semester. A grade of C- or better is required to continue in the program for the second
semester. In order to receive credit for eight semester hours of chemistry, students
must complete at least one full semester at the University of Dallas after completing
the O'Hara program.
