Course Fees

Syracuse Florence Center: Fall 2017

Students who register for any of the courses listed below will be charged a fee to cover special activities, such as field study or attendance at special local events, which are an integral part of the course. Field study fees may reflect cost of transportation, accommodations, guest lectures, and most entry fees. Attendance is mandatory, so we strongly discourage students from booking any personal travel before finalizing their registration in Florence so they know which course-related field study they will be required to attend.

Fees are billed from Syracuse University following the overseas registration period and will appear on a subsequent Bursar statement. Students receive an email notice to view their bill in MySlice. These fees are not included in either the tuition or program fees, which are billed prior to departure. All students who register for a course with a course-related fee are required to pay the fee, even if they are only auditing the course.

Please note: All field study is planned in advance and subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances (safety or weather-related alerts, labor strikes, etc.). In the event there are any changes to the proposed schedule/itinerary, we will either provide an alternative option of comparable academic significance and cost, or process the applicable credit to students’ Bursar accounts.

Financial deadline to withdraw from the program: Please refer to the Syracuse University Tuition, Fees, and Related Policies Bulletin  for information on refund of course-related fees for students who withdraw from the program voluntarily, involuntarily, or due to suspension or expulsion.

Financial drop deadline: Students who drop a class by the Financial Deadline indicated in MySlice may request a refund of any unspent or uncommitted portion of the course fee. There is no refund of course fees to students in the program who make course/credit changes after this deadline except for an excused absence due to a scheduling conflict with other required field study.
