If you are participating in a study abroad program sponsored by University of Chicago, your tuition will be the same as if you were enrolled in courses on campus. The allowance for books and personal expenses will also be the same. There is a program fee associated with each study abroad program that will be charged to your account. This fee includes accommodation, instruction, student support and program excursions. The above costs are used in determining your financial aid for the quarter for which you are abroad.
Additional out-of-pocket expenses (including a non-refundable study abroad administrative fee and travel expenses to and from your destination) are not included in your financial aid determination. Once on campus, certain College students are eligible for scholarships to assist with these out-of-pocket study abroad costs.
If you are participating in a study abroad program not sponsored by the University, you must take a leave of absence and are not eligible to receive financial aid through the University of Chicago. Participation in a non-University program, therefore, will not count toward the number of quarters in which you are eligible to recieve aid.
