What’s included in my program fee?

The Syracuse Florence program fee includes housing in private homes where students receive breakfast 7 days per week and an evening meal with their hosts 5 days a week (12 meals weekly). The fee also includes all-school field trips, a one-month transportation allowance, Syracuse Abroad insurance, membership to International SOS, orientation abroad, cultural activities, pre-departure meetings, and activities and services not covered by tuition and for which a separate fee is not charged.

Students placed in apartments (architecture and studio arts students only) have apartment rent and utilities paid from the program fee, and receive a cash allowance to partially cover meal expenses.

The optional Signature Seminars each carry an additional fee.


Course fees

Some courses carry mandatory course fees. These fees are course-specific and pay for special supplies, lab fees, site entry fees and/or field trips. Course fees are invoiced on the bill following registration.
