Links to the Student and Parent/Spouse registration forms are at the bottom of this page.
In order to secure enrollment in Gaelic Roots, payment must be received in full at time of registration. Reservations and partial payments are not accepted for registration or for accommodations. Children 14 years and under must be accompanied by an adult. All registration forms must be received at Boston College by April 1, 2003.
Registration will close when 400 students are enrolled. (Due to the popularity of Gaelic Roots, in the last three years registration officially closed at the end of February).
To withdraw from Gaelic Roots and receive a refund (less a $100 processing fee), you must notify us by April 1, 2003. Cancellations received between April 1 and June 1 will receive a 50% refund of student tuition fees and if staying on campus, a full housing fee refund. No tuition refunds after June 1st.
We do keep a waiting list. We will contact you in order of priority should there be any cancellations.
The cost of tuition for Gaelic Roots 2003 is $400. Tuition includes:
Registration will close before May 1st, if 400 students are enrolled before that date. In the last three years registration closed at the end of February.
When you register by e-mail; post or FAX, you should receive
an acceptance letter confirming your enrollment. If you do not receive
a confirmation letter within 20 days, you should call our office at (617) 552-1772
to inquire about your application's status.
Limited accommodations will be available on campus for registered students and accompanying parent or guardian on a first-come, first-served basis. Tuition fees do not include the cost of housing.
This year we do not have any single rooms available. Those wishing to have a single room should check our Off-Campus Accommodations page.
Living in the dorms while attending Gaelic Roots is a
convenient way to have easy access to all classes, evening programs, transportation
to off-campus events and all other Gaelic Roots events. It is also
less expensive than staying in hotels and B&Bs in the high priced Boston
market. However, if you chose to stay in the dorms you should remember
that these rooms are functional but they are not comparable to modern day
hotels and do not have the conveniences you would find in a hotel.
If you do not think you can adjust to living in a dorm, please see our
rates per person:
|Double occupancy||7 nights||$260|
|Double occupancy||6 nights||$225|
|Double occupancy||5 nights||$185|
All rooms are part of a 2- or 3-bedroom suite. All suites have a refrigerator, an eating and lounge area, and air conditioning.
Kitchen utensils are not provided. You MAY wish to bring a blanket, coffee/tea maker, dishes, or utensils to make your stay more comfortable. Linen service will be provided and laundry machines are available.
Other items that could make your stay more comfortable include:
radio, alarm clock, personal pillow, blanket, etc.
For classes you should bring a small tape recorder (with extra batteries), manuscript
paper & pencil, and extra strings or dance shoes "just in case".
Boston College is a hilly campus and most of the classrooms are on the upper level of the campus. Dorms and the cafeteria are on the lower level of the campus. There is an elevator in the seven story-parking garage for students who do not wish to use the stairs to the upper campus.
