Study Abroad

Costs & Financial Aid

Program Cost

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

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

Fall & Spring  (Semester or Academic Year)

  • Exchanges - students pay Pace tuition. 100% of scholarships and financial aid are applied to the tuition bill. Housing is not included and 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 not included and 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 not included and 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 Faculty-Led course has a specific Program Fee that is in addition to Pace tuition. The $500 deposit is paid to Pace through an online portal, which is in addition to the normal Pace tuition costs for the course.

Refund & cancellation policy

For Faculty-Led Programs: ​The $500 non-refundable program deposit and the $100 study abroad fee are non-refundable, unless the program is cancelled by Pace. If the student withdraws from the course after the drop/add period, they are subject to Pace University academic guidelines. Any refunds of Study Abroad program fees are considered on a case-by-case basis, and if confirmed would be made available only after program completion.

For Semester programs: ​The refund and cancellation policy is program-specific. For Exchange Programs, refer to the Tution and Fees policies outlined in the Pace academic catalog as these policies apply.

For all other programs, refer to the policies specified by your host institution/program provider.

Financial Aid
