Study Abroad

Costs & Financial Aid

Program Cost

Study Abroad program costs vary by type, destination, and duration. See specific program pages for estimated budgets. All study abroad programs carry an additional  $100 fee, billed through Pace. (The study abroad fee covers administrative fees as well as student graduation sashes with the flag of their specific study abroad country.)

The cost of tuition is determined by the following program-specific guidelines:

Fall & Spring  (Semester or Academic Year)

  • Exchanges - students pay Pace tuition. All scholarships and financial aid are applied to the tuition bill. Housing is paid directly to the school abroad.

  • Partners - students pay Pace tuition, and may use up to $10,000 of scholarships along with all of their financial aid. Housing is paid directly to the school abroad.

  • Other programs - billed on a case-by-case basis. Contact Education Abroad for a tuition bill breakdown. Housing is paid directly to the school abroad.

Summer & January

  • Cost is determined by and paid to the program through which students are travelling. Students are not billed Pace tuition.

Faculty-Led Courses

  • Each course has a set program fee that is paid to Pace through an online portal, which is in addition to the normal Pace tuition costs for the course.


Refund & cancellation policy

Both the program deposit and the $100 study abroad fee are non-refundable, unless the program is cancelled. For faculty-led programs, an attempt to recover funds from the tour provider will be made, but no refund is guaranteed.
