Pam Rosenberg, the Business Manager for the Division of International Programs, can help you understand the costs of study abroad, and compare programs based on cost. In some cases, the budget to study abroad for a semester can be little more than the budget to study in DeKalb for a semester! In other cases, study abroad can be much more expensive. In either case, the Business Manager will be able to help you make sense of the costs involved.
The Business Manager works with the Financial Aid office to help you determine whether your current financial aid package (grants and/or loans) will apply to study abroad, or whether you can secure additional funding (even if you don't currently receive financial aid). She also has information on different scholarship opportunities available for study abroad. Working with the International Programs Business Manager has made study abroad possible for many students who didn't think they could afford to study abroad!
These budgets are for information only and subject to change based on program cost, exchange rate, etc. For an up-to-date sample budget for a specific program, please contact the Business Office.
