General Studies Academic All-Inclusive Option
The all-inclusive cost is $1,200.00
In some cases, students need to submit a budget or expense estimates for their semester abroad. Since each course has a course fee which can vary greatly based in the course field trips, activities, textbooks, and/or digital readers, students will not know their total academic costs until after the drop/add period. This can make financial planning difficult. Furthermore, students may not have the funds to change their curriculum and enroll in courses with higher fees, which many times they must pay themselves.
The academic all-inclusive option addresses these concerns by establishing a fixed course fee payment regardless of the courses selected. This way students can submit their co-curricular expense budget and can freely change courses up until the end of drop/add without concern for additional costs. Instead, a fixed, single-fee, all-inclusive option makes budgeting and financing easier.
This option is exclusive to general studies students and not available for students in special programs like the FSE and MPP which have their own fees.
The all-inclusive fee covers:
Students must inform the Institute at least two months in advance to participate in this fixed-fee option.
Note: If students require that the permit of stay fee be billed separately for financial aid reasons or do not require a permit of stay (EU citizens and full AACUPI-membership schools*), please contact our enrollment office at [email protected]
