Important Notes about Tuition, Fees, and Additional Student Costs

1) Exchange program participants pay their regular ASU tuition for the study abroad program course(s), though ASU tuition and fees are NOT included in this Cost Sheet.  Because ASU tuition rates vary based on a number of factors, it is not possible to accurately capture your individual tuition information on this Cost Sheet. Please consult the ASU tuition schedule for more specific information about your individual tuition rates for the term and year of your Exchange program. ASU tuition will be directly billed to your ASU Student Account after you have registered for the study abroad placeholder course.   

2) Participants are also expected to pay certain mandatory ASU fees as normal. You will be expected to pay the Financial Aid Trust Fee as a condition of participation. You may click here for a description of this mandatory fee or click here to view current fee amounts for the term of your study abroad program. These expenses will be directly billed to your ASU Student Account after you register for the study abroad placeholder course.   

NOTE: Certain colleges and schools at ASU charge students an additional College Fee in order to maintain enrollment in the major (e.g. W. P. Carey, Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, etc.); students are responsible for paying these fees as normal. Barrett Honors College students will also be expected to pay their Barrett Honors College Fee regardless of whether honors credit is available on their program. In addition, some host institution courses may require additional fees (e.g. laboratory fees) that students will be responsible for paying directly. Use the ASU Tuition and Cost of Attendance Estimator to review program specific tuition and fees.

3) Participants are required to pay a $50 Application Fee, $400 Study Abroad Office Administrative Fee and Carbon Offset Fee as a condition of participation. Both the Application Fee and Administrative Fee are non-refundable. These will be directly billed to your ASU Student Account.

4) Exchange program participants are also required to pay an International Travel Service Fee which includes mandatory international medical insurance. The International Travel Service Fee listed above may be an estimate only. The actual cost of your mandatory international medical insurance will be directly billed to your ASU Student Account.

5) Participants will also incur Additional Student Costs throughout the duration of the program. The out-of-pocket costs outlined above are estimates only and may not be comprehensive. Actual expenses will vary depending primarily upon your lifestyle, cost of living in the program location(s), and the currency exchange rate. Click here to find tips and resources for budgeting your study abroad experience. These expenses are paid directly by you and will NOT be billed to your ASU Student Account.


Increasing Your Financial Aid Eligibility

Approximately 1-2 weeks after beginning your study abroad program application, you will receive an e-mail from Financial Aid and Scholarship Services with financial information designed to help you plan and make your decision to study abroad. Once you confirm your participation in your study abroad program, you will receive an additional e-mail from Financial Aid and Scholarship Services outlining your current aid package and listing any additional loans for which you may be eligible to apply. Fall semester awards will be posted no earlier than mid-July.

NOTE: Students may only be eligible for an increase in Federal Direct Subsidized and/or Unsubsidized loans, a Federal Direct Parent PLUS loan, or a Private Education loan. There is no guarantee that you will receive increased funding as a result of this process.


In order to be eligible for any financial aid, you must do the following:

  1. FILE a FAFSA for the academic year in which your program occurs, if you have not already done so. Once you have submitted your FAFSA, monitor your Financing Tasks on My ASU.

  2. CONFIRM your participation in your study abroad program. This is a step that you will take by clicking the "Commit" button within your online study abroad program application, after the status of your application has been changed to "Accepted" by your International Coordinator.  Please note that once you confirm, you are subject to the terms of the Study Abroad Withdrawal Policy.   Make absolutely certain you are ready to assume the financial responsibility of studying abroad on this program before you commit. 

  3. REVIEW and act on your award offer by either accepting, reducing, or declining any offered awards in My ASU.

  4. EXPECT an email from Financial Aid and Scholarship Services outlining any additional aid for which you are eligible and might apply.

  5. REGISTER in your study abroad placeholder course. You will find additional information about registering within your online study abroad program application.

You may visit Financial Aid and Scholarship Services at any time to review available aid for the term of your study abroad program or to request a financial aid estimate from a Financial Aid Counselor. We encourage you to speak with a Financial Aid Counselor even before creating a study abroad program application.


Comparing Costs for Different Programs

Affordability is an important factor when selecting a study abroad program. The programs offered through the ASU Study Abroad Office vary in cost depending on the features of the program, geographic location, length, program inclusions such as excursions and cultural activities, and the level of on-site support. Because institutions around the world determine program costs at different times, it may not always be possible for the Study Abroad Office to provide actual cost information until after the program application deadline. As you prepare your own study abroad budget, we encourage you to consult this cost sheet often to ensure that you are considering the most up-to-date information. Be sure to also visit this page for additional tips and resources for comparing program costs.
