One of the most common questions asked about studying abroad is how much a program costs.
All study abroad programs vary in price. Please note that the program cost reflected on the page does not include tuition for the semester of study. While many programs include daily breakfasts or a few meals, you will also need to bring spending money during your travels.
We understand many students rely on internal fundraising opportunities to help fund their study abroad program. At this time, the health and safety of our students and community remains our top priority. In an effort to encourage and support social distancing, we will not be hosting fundraising opportunities for the 2021-2022 academic year. We plan to reinstate fundraising opportunities in the future.
Scholarship availability for the 2021-2022 application cycle will be announced at a later date.
If you have questions about the scholarship application or recommendation process, please review this presentation.
Learn some of the financial aid basics on how you can potentially use financial aid to assist you with studying abroad. You can also call or email the Financial Aid Office for more information.
We are highly invested in helping our students study abroad. Often, the biggest hurdle students face is the question of how they will pay their study abroad trip. One of the ways our office helps with this is to offer scholarships. If you would like to contribute to our scholarship fund or to any other part of study abroad, we encourage you to donate to the Study Abroad Fund.
Veterans may be able to use Veteran Affairs (VA) Educational Benefits to pay for study abroad courses, but certain restrictions apply.
The VA Educational Benefits will cover a course that is required for completion of a degree plan. These courses will be listed in your degree plan in JagTrax. However, these courses can be paid for by the VA if a course substitution is approved. To complete a course substitution, visit the academic department of your major or Academic Advising (if you currently have less than 60 credit hours). Turn in the completed Course Substitution Request Form (which can be found on our FAQ page) to the Registrar's office and inform your VA School Certifying Official. VA will only pay tuition and mandatory fees associated with the course, they will not pay for any travel related costs.
