Your financial aid package for your semester abroad will travel with you and be adjusted based on the estimated cost of attendance (housing, food, university sponsored excursions, etc.).

CALS has created a cost comparison spreadsheet between exchange programs and most attended study abroad programs offered through the Office of Global Learning for reference. Please note, we cannot provide a cost comparison for all programs. You can do a cost comparison using the same categories.
