The program cost is $4300. The cost includes:
The $4300 cost is broken down into 3 payments:
Students may use summer financial aid to pay for program fees, except the $200 deposit. Summer financial aid is usually whatever aid a student did not use for fall and spring. It is also usually loans, not grants. Students can apply for independent loans through private lenders or by talking with a Campus 411 representative.
In order to apply summer financial aid toward these fees, the student must provide the Study Abroad office with a copy of their financial aid award letter reflecting that the student has enough summer aid to cover both their tuition costs for all courses taken in the summer term and the program fees. The student must also provide the Study Abroad office with their summer course schedule. All of these documents must be submitted to the study abroad office by the March 29th payment deadline.
If you have any questions about using financial aid toward the study abroad cost, please contact the Study Abroad office.
