Program costs are estimates and subject to change up to the program commitment deadline. If Penn State tuition rates are adjusted for summer 2021, then the education abroad program fee would be scaled accordingly to arrive at the same total billable amount listed on the budget sheet.
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. Please note that a second semester discount will be awarded for academic year participants.
The Education Abroad Program Fee includes:
Some meals with host family
On-site orientation and support
This budget is based on a student taking seven credits. Fees will vary depending on the number of credits taken, and estimates of those costs are included for your reference.
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.
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.
