Tuition, Fees, and Expenses


Each IFS is offered as a three semester hour graduate business course. Students will be registered for the course in the Summer 1 term and will be responsible for the corresponding tuition charge. The 2017-2018 tuition rate is $1,560 per semester hour, for a total charge of $4,680.00 

Program Activity Fee

All students on the IFS trips will be charged a $1,000.00 program activity fee*. The fee covers program costs such as management fees, double occupancy accommodations, breakfasts; some luncheons and dinners, course related local transportation and university and cultural programs. Single occupancy accommodations, where available and requested, will be additional. Roommate requests for double occupancy rooms will be honored, if possible. The fee will be assessed with the Summer 1 tuition charges.


A non-refundable deposit of $200.00 will be required at the time of application to the program.* This deposit will be applied to the activity fee charge. If a student cannot be accommodated in a course or if the desired course is canceled, the deposit will be refunded. Once a student has been notified of their acceptance on a trip, the deposit is non-refundable. The full program activity fee will be assessed and not refunded for any cancellation after March 9, 2018*.

Other Expenses

Students are responsible for travel arrangements and costs of air travel to the starting point of the course and from the departure point. Students are also responsible for passport/visa costs, meals not covered by the program activity fee and incidental expenses.
