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.

For this program, In-State and Out-of State tuition rates are determined by Temple, and may not match your Penn State designation based on certain factors. 

The Education Abroad Program Fee includes:

  • Housing
  • On-site orientation and support
  • International Student Health Insurance
  • Resident Permit
The program fee and meal costs are based on students living in apartments. Limited homestays are available for an additional cost.

Some courses may carry additional fees covering trips to sites or museums associated with a course. These fees will vary and are paid directly to Temple after the start of the semester in Rome.

Students will pay confirmation and housing deposits directly to Temple.

Student Visa and Residence Permit Cost

The visa processing fee is approximately $60 and is updated by consulates every two months to adjust for inflation and exchange rate. Students should anticipate paying an additional $195 for the Permesso di Siorggiorno (Residence Permit) upon arrival in Italy. Students using a visa processor may be subject to additional processing fees.

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 the nearest Italian Embassy or Consulate.

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 Temple withdrawal and refund policies.

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