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.

The Education Abroad Program Fee includes:

  • Housing and utilities
  • On-site orientation and support
  • Italian immigration document assistance
  • Cultural activities
Students may encounter addition fees assesd on-site for academic site visits.
