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 Administrative Fee, and an Education Abroad Program Fee.
The program fee includes:
On-site orientation and support
Some field trips
Student visa fees and support
Non-Pennsylvania residents participating on this program will be credited an amount in the Beginning Balance of their semester bills which, when subtracted from the Non-Pennsylvania tuition rate, reflects a net tuition equal to the established Pennsylvania resident tuition rate.
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 the 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 CIEE withdrawal and refund policies.
The budget estimate is based on residence halls where meals are not included and are the responsibility of the student. Most meals are included in a homestay, but students should budget for their own lunches, some weekend meals and most meals on group field trips and individual travel.
