Program costs are estimates and subject to change up to the program commitment deadline.
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.
All students are assessed the standard University Park tuition. Non-Pennsylvania residents participating on this program will also 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.
The Education Abroad Program Fee includes:
On-site orientation and support
Some field trips
This budget shows estimated costs for students living in a homestay, which provides two meals per day as part of the program fee. Students choosing to live in an apartment have no meals provided and should budget $1,400.00 for meals during the program.

This program offers the option for six credits or seven credits depending on your Spanish language placement. The budget sheet on this page demonstrates the costs for the seven-credit option.

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 IES withdrawal and refund policies.
