The tuition amount listed above is for 4 credits on the study abroad program. This is the minimum number of credits in which each student must enroll. If a student chooses to register for more than 4 credits, they will be charged additional tuition at a cost of $1610/credit hour. (The full list of University tuition and fees can be found here.)
Billable items will be posted to your student account in early May and you will receive your bill in the same manner as you do for semester courses (either through your account online or mailed to you).
Billable program costs cover your tuition, all accommodations during the program, a limited number of meals (approx. one meal each week), program site visits/excursions, and transportation between program sites, when applicable.
Non-billable items will not be posted to your student account. As noted above, this is an estimated amount. You will need to cover your international airfare, most meals, local ground transportation, books, passport and visa fees (if applicable), a phone that works while abroad, and spending money.
Scholarships and Financial Aid
Students are encouraged to visit the Flyer Student Services Office to discuss financial aid for study abroad.

Refund and Withdrawal Policy for Faculty-Led Programs
The costs associated with University of Dayton faculty-led programs include, but are not limited to excursions and field trips, accommodations, a limited number of meals, and ground transportation. All costs are collectively negotiated for the purpose of reducing expenses, and most are paid in advance for all participants. For that reason, the University sets and enforces strict refund and withdrawal policies. Make sure you understand the following consequences of withdrawing from a faculty-led program.
Students may only withdraw from a program by submitting the withdrawal notice in writing (email) to the Office of Education Abroad. These email notifications must be sent to Kelly Brannan Trail at email@example.com or Zoe Krzywda at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Withdrawal circumstances beyond the applicant’s control may exempt the student from fee liabilities upon approval from the Office of Education Abroad.
A telephone call or in person office visit is NOT an acceptable method for a withdrawing from a program.
Students placed on probation after applying for study abroad, or dismissed from the University will be withdrawn from the program automatically. However, this withdraw will not occur until we are informed of the disciplinary sanction by the Office of Community Standards and Civility, which may be several weeks after the disciplinary sanction is rendered. Thus, students are encouraged to proactively notify the Office of Education Abroad if they are put on probation or dismissed from the university. Students withdrawn for disciplinary reasons are subject to the financial obligations schedule as of the date that the Office of Education Abroad withdraws their application. (See schedule below).
If a program is cancelled by the University for any reason at any date then affected students will not be subject to any financial withdrawal penalties.
Questions? Contact Kelly Brannan Trail at email@example.com or 937-229-3596.
Students who withdraw are liable for the following costs:
$50 Application fee: Non-refundable regardless of date and/or reason for withdrawal.
$200 Deposit: Non-refundable
Tuition: The Office of Education Abroad follows the university tuition refund policy. Visit https://udayton.edu/fss/your_money/tuitionfees/fees_withdrawals.php for the refund policy. Programs that are 3 weeks in length or longer follow the Summer Session I and II withdraw/refund schedule. Programs that are fewer than 3 weeks in length, follow a tuition refund schedule in which the student receives a refund of 30% if they withdraw in the first half of their program and they receive a refund of 0% if they withdraw at any point after the half-way point of their program.
If the student withdraws after the start of the program, based on the written withdrawal request, the Office of Education Abroad will drop the student from the course(s) through the Registrar’s office. If the student withdraws before the start of the program, he/she should notify the Office of Education to inquire about next steps.
Withdrawal from language courses offered for transfer credit are also subject to standard tuition refund policies.
Additional Financial Obligations
Because the University makes several non-refundable payments on behalf of students, the following charges will be added to the student’s account based on the date at which they withdraw from the program:
Withdraw May 15 or later: $2200 charged
Withdraw May 1 - 14: $1650 charged
Withdraw April 15 - 30: $1100 charged
Withdraw April 1 -14: $550 charged
Withdraw prior to April 1: $200 non-refundable deposit is retained
These charges will be added to the student’s account, minus the $200 deposit already received.
