What Does It Cost?

The quoted prices are estimated as air fares and hotel rates are subject to change. While the costs for study abroad programs may seem high at first, if you add up tuition, fees, housing, meals, and cost of round-trip air fares, you will find that the programs are reasonable. Most forms of financial aid will apply to study aboard, including the Hope Scholarship. The Regents Study Aboard Scholarships and other competitive scholarships are also available for some programs. Questions regarding financial aid should be directed to the campus coordinator of the program or to the financial aid office.
