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 and billing information available.
Students are assessed the standard University Park Penn State Tuition and Technology Fee, and an Education Abroad Administrative Fee.
Billable costs include:
You will also be required to pay a $1,000 deposit for the program that is usually due in mid-November. This deposit will be put toward the cost of your housing and is paid directly to Tel Aviv. The housing cost listed above takes into account the deduction of the deposit.
Housing is arranged and billed by your host institution. Costs will vary depending on housing type. The housing cost listed above takes into account the deduction of the $1,000 program deposit.
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. Please note U.S. citizens who study in Israel will be required to travel to the Consulate General of Israel in New York City to apply for a visa in-person prior to the start of the program and should budget for travel costs accordingly.
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.
