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.

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 a net tuition equal to the established Pennsylvania resident tuition rate. 

The Education Abroad Program Fee includes:

  • Housing and utilities
  • On-site orientation and support
  • Some field trips
  • Italian immigration and visa assistance

Student Visa and Residence Permit Cost


The visa processing fee is approximately $56 and is updated by consulates every two months to adjust for inflation and exchange rate. Students should anticipate paying an additional $195 for the Permesso di Siorggiorno (Residence Permit) upon arrival in Italy. Students using a visa processor may be subject to additional processing fees.

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 the nearest Italian Embassy or Consulate.


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 and Insurance 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 Arcadia withdrawal and refund policies.

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