Program Costs

Program costs vary depending on the program that you select. The type of program can have a big effect on how the costs are set up and what extra costs you might need to expect. On the right side of the page is an optional Cost Comparison Tool, which might make it easier to compare the costs of different programs. Take a look at the Cost Comparison Tool Example to see how much the program type and location can affect the cost of your study abroad program choice.
