The extra credit(s) earned for a short-term program abroad is registered during the same semester as the related on-campus course(s) or sessions. This means that full-time SU undergraduates pay no additional tuition charge for the overseas program, as long as they have not exceeded the 19-credit limit for the semester*. A program fee is charged to cover the cost of round-trip transportation, accomodations, group meals, ground transportation, and other activities and services for which a separate fee is not charged. Meals, personal transportation, and activities not related to the program are the responsibility of the student. Fees vary by program and are listed on the individual program pages.
*Graduate students and visiting students do pay a per-credit tuition charge for the additional credit(s) earned during the program abroad.
Because many of the short-term programs are integrated as elements of an on-campus course, grants and awards are not available. We encourage students to schedule a meeting with a financial aid counselor early in the planning stages to review program costs and your current need.
A limited number of $1,000 grants are available to undergraduate students who are eligible for need-based financial aid as determined by the CSS/Financial Aid Profile. These grants are given out on a first-come first-serve basis.
