How do I pay for study abroad?

Emory & Henry Abroad Faculty-Led Courses

  • There is no additional tuition for the E&H Abroad Courses offered during the regular semester; however, students must pay a program fee, which varies by course.
  • If students wish to use financial aid to help with the E&H course program fee and the additional expenses associated with these programs, they should meet with a representative in the Centralized Student Assistance (CSA) office to determine what aid will apply. This meeting should take place before the student applies to the E&H Abroad program.

Semester Abroad Study

Emory & Henry College has a list of approved programs from which students can choose. Students typically stay enrolled at E&H while they are abroad for a semester. Programs available include:

Student Exchange Programs

  • Pay regular tuition to Emory & Henry College
  • Pay the housing costs to the university abroad and any additional fees required by the host institution (e.g., meals, insurance, lab fees, etc.)
  • The $2000 semester abroad fee is waived for the exchange programs

The E&H Holston to Liffey Semester Abroad Program in Dublin, Ireland

  • Pay regular tuition to Emory & Henry College
  • Pay the housing costs to E&H and any additional fees required by the host institution (e.g., meals, insurance, lab fees, etc.)
  • The $2000 semester abroad fee is waived for the Holston to Liffey Dublin Program

E&H Affiliate Programs

  • If you want to study abroad for a semester in a location not included in our exchange offerings, you can choose to study with an affiliate program. In order to enroll in an affiliate program, students must take a short leave of absence from E&H and pay directly to the provider.

Additional Fees for Study Abroad

  • Passport
  • Visa (If applicable)
  • Air transportation
  • Meals (if not included)
  • Books & Supplies
  • Personal Expenses
  • Local transportation
  • Medical Insurance (E&H has insurance that covers basic medical while students are abroad; however, some programs/countries require additional insurance)

The Office of International Education can provide you with a list of additional expenses for your particular program.

Students who plan to study abroad for a semester should meet with a representative from the Office of International Education as soon as possible to find a program that fits with their professional goals and to become familiar with the semester abroad application process.
