Tuition and Program Fee

Program costs are estimates and subject to change up to the program commitment deadline.

The budget sheet on this page demonstrates the costs for the 6 credit option.

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 and technology fee. 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 net tuition equal to the established Pennsylvania resident tuition rate. 

The Education Abroad Program Fee includes:

  • Housing (homestay)
  • Some meals with host family
  • On-site orientation and support

Education Abroad Fees By Credit

This program offers the option to enroll in 3, 6, or 9 credits. For costs broken down for the 3 credits options or 9 credits option, as they would appear on your bursar bill, please refer to the following table:

  • 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.
