To help you to prepare for your semester abroad the Office of International Education has created semester budget sheets for your reference. These budget sheets are only an estimation and actual expenses may vary depending on changes in currency exchange rates, tuition increases, airfare and personal spending habits. We suggest that you set up a personalized budget to follow for the duration of your program.

We strongly encourage you to print this budget sheet, and set-up a meeting with your financial aid counselor early during the application process to discuss how you will be paying for the program. Students who are eligible for financial aid may use such aid to help pay for all of the costs outlined on the budget sheet. Give your financial aid counselor a copy of the budget sheet for your program so your financial award can be adjusted to take into account the increased costs.
