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.

Students are assessed the standard University Park Penn State Tuition and Technology Fee, an Education Abroad Administrative Fee, and an Education Abroad Program Fee.

The tuition/program fee includes:
  • Housing
  • On-site orientation and support

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.

Education Abroad Fees By Credit

The Accelerated Chinese Language program track is ten credits.
The Business and Culture program track offers the option to enroll in three, four, six, seven, nine, or ten credits.


The budget sheet on this page demonstrates the costs for the six-credit option. For costs broken down for the other credit options, as they would appear on your bursar bill please refer to the following tables:
