The Default Cost estimates have been entered with $15 to be spent per participant on Materials/Handouts; $10 per participant on Meals/Food Service; $1.50 per participant is estimated to be spent on Credit Card Charges; $7.25 is charged per participant by Extension Registration Services. The total cost per Enrollee is $33.75 and the system calculates the total estimated cost to be: $1012.50.
