While most programs are comparable in cost to attending Cedarville, some are more expensive. Airfare is generally never included in the pricing. Some programs include meals while others do not. Check out your program’s website thoroughly to find out what is covered in the program fee. Also, don’t forget about local transportation to and from class in some locations.
Students who participate in any of the study abroad programs on this website remain enrolled at Cedarville. Except for the JUC program, as an enrolled student, all current financial aid applies to the cost of the program. You are responsible for the application fee and program deposit. The rest will be invoiced to Cedarville.
In addition to the program cost, there is a $500 administrative fee to participate in any of the programs. That will be included on your Cedarville invoice.
Make sure that all paper work for your FAFSA is complete.
