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 Educaiton Abroad Program Fee.

The program fee includes:
  • Housing
  • On-site orientation and support
  • Student visa support and fees
  • Some field trips (does not include cost of meals on field trips)

Non-Pennsylvania residents participating on this program will 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.

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 CIEE withdrawal and refund policies.

For more information, please consult the University Senate Policy on Withdrawal and Leave of Absence.


Meals while not on community visits are not included in the program fee and are the responsibility of the student. Students can eat at the university cafeteria or local restaurants.
