ACM program costs

The total amount students must pay to participate in an off-campus study program varies from college to college, as does the availability of financial aid for off-campus study.  These campus policies are often based on the specific curricular goals established at each college.  Depending on the policies of a student’s home college, charges for off-campus study may be based upon the program’s cost, or may be based upon the college’s own tuition.  Additionally, some colleges may assess special fees for off-campus study.

As a result, students should check with their Off-Campus Study Office and their Financial Aid Office to confirm how their college charges students for off-campus study programs, what additional campus fees may apply, and how financial aid may be used toward the cost of their program.


Note: Upon acceptance to the program, students will be required to pay a deposit, which will be applied toward the program fee.
