Paying for Your Trip

As you’re choosing your study abroad experience, be sure to make note of the costs. Most semester trips are comparable in costs to a semester on campus, but some will be more expensive. Any overage will be billed to the student. Airfare is not included in the pricing. Check out your program’s website thoroughly to find out what is covered in the program fees. Some locations will require that you consider the cost of local transportation to and from class.

As an enrolled student, current financial aid may apply to the cost of the program. Check with Cedarville University Financial Aid to confirm and to complete your FAFSA paperwork.
