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. Please note that a second semester discount will be awarded for academic year participants.
The Education Abroad Program Fee includes:
As a Penn State student you will automatically be awarded a $1500 Public School Grant from IES. IES has created this award to make their programs affordable to you. This award has already been calculated into the budget sheet.
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.
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.
