The Price of Studying Abroad

There is no “standard” in study abroad pricing, so it can be difficult to do price comparisons. Some prices include tuition only, but others may include everything – airfare, housing, meals, excursions, tuition, and insurance. Remember that you will also need to include the price of a passport and/or visa, if needed. On any study abroad program, your final price will vary depending on how much you plan to travel independently, souvenir shop, and eat at restaurants.

It is important to find out what is included in the advertised program price so that you know how many additional costs you will have.

For all programs, there is a $30 application fee that you will pay after you apply and are accepted by the Study Abroad Committee.
