Students will pay SPU tuition plus an applicable program fee depending on the program type and location.

Participants are billed SPU charges for their study abroad program, not the fees advertised in third party brochures or websites. Program fees are determined by considering the amenities included in the program, the overall cost of those amenities, the cost of living in the host country, and the overall cost of the program to the university.
Please note that programs only include tuition expenses. Other expenses related to participation in the program (housing, meals, orientation activities, excursions, etc.) are the responsibility of the student and will be paid directly to the host organization.Students will earn transfer credit (except for Best Semester Programs which award SPU credit) upon completion of their program.
