Important Notes about Program Fees and Additional Student Costs

1) Faculty Directed program participants DO NOT pay tuition to ASU for their study abroad program course(s), up to the specified number of credits offered on the program. Instead, you will be required to pay the Program Fee listed above as a condition of participation. After registering for your study abroad program course(s), tuition will be charged to your ASU Student Account as normal; the Study Abroad Office will then apply a billing credit to your ASU Student Account to cover the cost of tuition (which is already included in the Program Fee). The Program Fee will be directly billed to your ASU Student Account.

2) Participants are required to pay mandatory registration fees to ASU as normal.  Although you DO NOT pay tuition for the Study Abroad Office program course(s), you will be expected to pay the following mandatory fees as a condition of participation: Technology Fee and Financial Aid Trust Fee. You may click here for a description of these mandatory fees or click here to view current fee amounts for the term of your Study Abroad Office program. These expenses will be directly billed to your ASU Student Account after you register for your program course(s). 

NOTE: Certain colleges and schools at ASU charge students an additional program tuition/fee in order to maintain enrollment in the major (e.g. W. P. Carey, Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering); students are responsible for paying these fees as normal. In addition, some ASU courses incur special class fees (e.g. foreign language courses). 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 as a condition of participation. The $50 Application Fee is non-refundable. The Application Fee will be directly billed to your ASU Student Account.

4) 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 Office program application, you will receive an e-mail from Financial Aid and Scholarship Services detailing your estimated financial aid awards for the summer. After you confirm your participation in your Study Abroad Office program, Financial Aid and Scholarship Services will use the above cost information to reassess your summer cost of attendance. At that time, it is possible that you could receive additional loans. Actual summer awards will be automatically posted no earlier than mid-April.

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 for the summer term, 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. Summer is associated with the previous academic year. Once you have submitted your FAFSA, monitor your Financing Tasks on My ASU.

2) CONFIRM your participation in your Study Abroad Office program. This is a step that you will take by clicking the "Commit" button within your online Study Abroad Office 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 Study Abroad Office Payment and Withdrawal Policies.   Make absolutely certain you are ready to assume the financial responsibility of participating in 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 for your study abroad program course(s).

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. 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.
