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 Administrative Fee, and an Education Abroad Program Fee.

The program fee includes:
  • Housing
  • On-site orientation and support
  • Some field trips
  • Some meals may be provided depending on location of study and housing option. 

Education Abroad Fees By Credit

This program offers the option for one, two, or three academic blocks during the semester. During each block students take two three-credit courses. Students can take 6, 12, or 18 credits per semester on this program depending on the number of blocks attended. The budget sheet on this page demonstrates the costs for the 18-credit option (three blocks). For costs broken down for the 6-credit and 12-credit options as they would appear on your bursar bill please refer to the following tables:

Student Visa Cost

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.

  • Any adjustment of tuition charges will be made according to the Tuition Adjustment Schedule as determined by the Office of the Bursar
