Tuition and Program Fee

As institutions around the world determine program costs at different times, it is difficult for Education Abroad to provide actual cost information until shortly before the beginning of a program. You are encouraged to consult this document on a regular basis as it is frequently updated with the most current cost information and billing information available.

Students are assessed the standard University Park Penn State Tuition and Technology Fee, an Education Abroad Program Fee, and an Education Abroad Administrative Fee.

The billable costs include:

  • Housing
  • Small Meal subsidy (50 Euros on a cafeteria debit card, amount subject to change)
  • Course materials for the intensive German class
  • Cultural programs
  • Administration fee
  • Public transportation pass
  • German health insurance
The Dormitory Room Deposit is refundable when the key is returned and if there is no damage to the room. It will be paid in cash upon arrival in Marburg. Students who study in Marburg for one year will also need to budget for one additional months rent between semesters. 

Student Visa Cost

The actual cost of the visa will vary depending on the type of visa required and the student's country of citizenship. The Consulate General of the host country reserves the right to change their visa fees without prior notice. For exact pricing, students should contact directly the nearest Consulate for the host country. Students may be required to purchase additional insurance to satisfy residency requirements.

Program Withdraw/Refund Policy

Regardless of the reason and effective date of withdrawal, it is the responsibility of students to immediately notify Education Abroad in writing and to understand the implications of their withdrawal actions. 

  • The Education Abroad Administrative fee will be assessed to students' bursar bill regardless of the reason and effective date of withdrawal. 
  • In certain cases, partial program expenses may be refundable but only to extent that Education Abroad can recover expenses incurred on behalf of the student.
  • Any adjustment of tuition charges will be made according to the Tuition Adjustment Schedule as determined by the Office of the Bursar
  • Students should also consult the withdrawal and refund policies of the abroad institution.

For more information, please consult the University Senate Policy on Withdrawal and Leave of Absence.
