Costs & Financial Aid

Semester Abroad

Students participating on semester or academic year abroad programs remain enrolled at Pace University and will continue to pay tuition and fees directly to Pace. For some students who chose lower cost destinations abroad, a study abroad semester may actually be less expensive than a semester at Pace because both the cost of living and housing may be lower abroad.
