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.
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.
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 that students may be required to apply for their visa in person at the Consulate or Embassy. $500 for estimated travel costs is included in the "Additional Personal Expenses" estimate.
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.
For more information, please consult the University Senate Policy on Withdrawal and Leave of Absence.
