Paying for Your Program

As you're choosing a study abroad program, be sure to make note of the costs. Most semester-long programs are comparable in costs to a semester on campus, but some may be more expensive. See below for a sample breakdown of billable costs and other expenses to keep in mind.

Students who participate in a CU Study Abroad program will remain enrolled at Cedarville University.
