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, and an Education Abroad Administrative Fee.

This is a tuition only exchange. All other fees will be billed directly to the student by the host institution.

The Ulpan intensive Hebrew course is offered by the Deparmtent of Humanities & Arts at Technion during the summer  (August – September) and cost 1,500 NIS and is available to students studying at Technion for the academic year. Additionally, Technion International, together with the Department of Humanities & Arts, offers a conversational Hebrew course for beginners during the Spring semetser that costs 1,100 NIS.
The optional internship comes at an additional cost of $1,500. Students cannot complete both an optional internship and Ulpan; therefore, the greater of the two (the cost of the internship at $1,500 USD) is included in the "Estimated Additional Expenses" budget line.

Upon arrival in Israel, students pay campus fees of approximately 500 NIS ($125.00 USD) which is listed in the Student Services Fee on the budget sheet.

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.
