Structure of program fees – whom do I pay and what is the timeline?
The fee structure and payment deadlines depend on the type of the Education Abroad program you choose. Reach out to your Education Abroad contact for a detailed breakdown of items included and additional expenses to budget.
Payment timeline – are there alternative options?
Each program will have a payment timeline, as well as a withdrawal and refund policy. Take time to review these, plan accordingly, and ask questions.
For eligible students, there might be alternative payment options available. A few examples include enrolling in installment plans, partial deferment of payment until financial aid disbursement, or book now and pay later (flexible pay airfare programs). If you are concerned about meeting the original program payment timeline, schedule a meeting with your program contact to discuss available options based on your financial situation.
