How do I pay for study abroad?

Emory & Henry Abroad (EA) Courses

  • There is no additional tuition for the EA 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 EA 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 EA program.
