Applicants must submit an application to participate in the Washington Campus program. This application must be submitted to Erick Rodriguez in Anderson's Ford Advisement Center. Applicants must submit the following items:
- A current UNM advisement transcript (unofficial) listing current semester courses.
- A current resume detailing education and experience.
- A 2-page essay explaining your interest in the program, how your involvement in the Washington Campus program will benefit the Anderson community, and what you expect to gain from the program.
All applicants will be interviewed by the faculty coordinator before candidates are selected. After candidates have been selected, they will need to register with the Washington Campus program itself, with the tuition and fees described below. Enrollment is limited. For best consideration, completed applications for the first two sessions in January and March should be submitted by the stated deadlines. All applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
"The most important thing that I take away from this course is the knowledge that I can make a difference. I have always been told that I have a voice and that my vote counts, but I never knew how much or what I could do to influence public policy."
- Sara Stratton, Anderson MBA student

Tuition & Fees
The Washington Campus tuition is $1,750.00. Anderson provides some scholarship assistance. You are encouraged to check with your employer for funding assistance. Students will be responsible for all program expenses prior to attending and applying for scholarship assistance upon their return.
Students are responsible for payment of three (3) hours tuition at UNM. Students are also responsible for all lodging, meals, and transportation expenses. UNM does not coordinate travel or lodging. These activities are the responsibility of the individual students.
The amount of scholarship assistance depends upon the number of students who attend all sessions of the program and the amount of funding allotted by the university. The exact amount of reimbursement cannot be determined until all sessions have been completed. It is imperative that students keep all receipts from this program for reimbursement records!
Travel & Accommodations
The Washington Campus sessions are held in downtown Washington, D.C. The subway can provide quick and inexpensive transportation from other hotels to the campus location. Caution should be used in choosing alternate accommodations, and safety should be considered.
Students are responsible for making and paying for all travel and accommodation arrangements. Students are welcome and encouraged to share these hotel accommodations with other students attending during your session to help cut costs. Erick Rodriguez in Anderson's Ford Advisement Center may be contacted to obtain a list of Anderson students attending your particular session.
A fee of $100 will be assessed for cancellations received in writing within three weeks of the program start date. No refunds will be given to students who do not cancel and do not attend.
