Program fee includes on-site transportation, entrance fees, lodging, and breakfast each day.  CISI travel/medical/emergency insurance will appear as a separate line on student's Ubill and will provide coverage during the entire program. Students arrange their own airfare.

Incidentals, books and supplies, airfare and meals are estimates and will not be included on the U-bill. Some expenses need to be paid in Italy as you go, so should be budgeted individually.

If you already have a passport, you can ignore the Passport and Mailing costs. These are provided to the Office of Financial Aid for purposes of adjusting your aid so we try to estimate to make sure you have sufficient funds. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers passport reimbursement for first-time travelers who have majors in LAS. Please see instructions at

NOTE: For Summer 2019, all participants will receive a $750 tuition award from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. This will appear as a credit on your U-bill just like a scholarship with other financial aid.

These fees are estimates and subject to change due to currency exchange fluctuations and unforeseen circumstances. For clarification of any fees for this program, please contact Nancy T. Guthrie,
