Billing and Payment OptionsSPU Programs
Your program cost will be paid directly to Seattle Pacific University. For faculty-led programs, the program fee less the $300 deposit and applicable financial aid is divided into three payments, with the last payment due 30 days prior to departure. After you receive your acceptance notification from the study abroad office, you will receive a separate email from Student Financial Services outlining your estimated costs, payment procedures and due dates. It is important to make these payments on time to maintain active status on the program.
You will find the program costs on the individual program pages on this site as soon as they are available. If you are not certain of your program cost, please contact our office. It is important for you to know what is included in your program cost and what additional costs you need to plan for. Additional costs may include airfare, meals, books and materials, optional excursions and personal expenses, and in some cases your accommodations. If you have any questions about additional fees, please contact us.
Program costs for non-SPU programs will be paid directly to the provider or host university. It is very important to know what is included and what is not. You will not pay tuition to SPU for the quarter or semester abroad. There will be a $300 study abroad fee that is assessed to your BANNER account when you enroll in a non-SPU program.
For all programs, it is important for you to notify the Study Abroad Center immediately if you decide to cancel. Delaying this notification may result in non-refundable charges to your BANNER account. Please carefully read the SPU's Withdrawal Policy for study abroad.
