Estimated Cost of Attendance

For all information regarding the program tuition costs and payment methods for the 2024-2025 academic year, please refer to the Student Financial Services website.


The Program Fee and Tuition Inclusions

The Program fee and tuition inclusions are subject to change for Fall 2024:

Inclusions Exclusions
  • Tuition
  • Housing
  • Dedicated 24/7 support staff
  • Group flight fare & coordination

  • Passport fees
  • Independent travel expenses

Every student has different requirements for monthly budgets. This is in part due to the difference in the cost of living expenses across locations and in part due to the wants and needs of each student. The following information is provided as a general guide, and more specific budgeting tips will be shared during pre-departure orientation.

We recommend students have access to personal funds during the semester for expenses not covered by the program fee (see above). Housing options vary by site and actual budgets for meals can vary widely by housing type.

Enrollment Deposits

The first step you must take to reserve a place in The Program is to submit your nonrefundable enrollment deposits.

First deposit: $1,200

Second deposit: $2,500

Visit your Application Status Check for payment deadlines and to submit your deposits. For details on how to make your deposits and set up your myNortheastern student portal, please see the Enrollment Information page of our website. 

Financial Aid Eligibility

While enrolled in the fall semester of The Program, students who apply for financial aid are considered for need-based funding and merit funding. As students are pre-matriculated, grants, loans, and work awards from federal and state sources cannot be applied to the fall semester while you are actively participating in The Program. If you qualify, you can use these financial options beginning with the spring semester. All supplemental loans, including the Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loan, are available to students and parents beginning in the spring semester as well.
