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:
This program offers the option to enroll in six or nine-credits. The budget sheet on this page demonstrates the costs for the six-credit option. For costs broken down for the nine-credits option, as they would appear on your bursar bill please refer to the following table:
Billable Items for 9 Credits
Housing is included in the billable costs of the program. Meals are not included in the billable costs for this program and are an out-of-pocket expense.
Visas are not required for US citizens completing this program but may be required for citizens of other countries. 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.
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.
For more information, please consult the University Senate Policy on Withdrawal and Leave of Absence.
Meals are not included in the dormitory and are therefore the responsibility of the student.
