UMass students studying abroad do not pay regular UMass tuition & fees but do pay the program fee associated with their selected program. The costs vary widely and can be more or less than a semester on campus. It’s important that you know the amount of the program fee, what it includes, what additional expenses to expect, and the payment deadlines. All of this information is published, so please consider costs when you select your program. If you’re having trouble finding your program costs, meet with a Peer Advisor.

Questions about finances, payment, and other money topics? Please schedule an appointment with Kate Smith. Your family members are welcome to attend.
