Off-Campus Program Financials

It is extremely important to understand the financial impact of your study abroad/off-campus program.

Please note: All summer programs are an out-of-pocket expense and students will pay the program provider directly. Financial aid cannot be used for summer programs, but many programs do offer their own scholarships that can be applied for their summer programs.

The information below is for semester programs. Financial aid may apply for semester programs.

Exchange Programs

Quick Note: Only our partner,  (International Student Exchange Program), offers Exchange programs. All programs outside of ISEP are Direct/Direct-Enroll programs. Furthermore, ISEP offers BOTH types of programs.

Students who participate in an Exchange program will be billed the following to their 澳门开奖直播 Student Account:

  • Lake Forest Tuition
  • ISEP Program Fee (includes the cost of 澳门开奖直播 standard room space and meal plan)
  • ISEP Exchange Fee (includes the $100 administrative fee, as well as the student's ISEP deposit and ISEP health insurance)

Please Note:
(from )

As a participant on an exchange program, you pay a fee to your home institution based on the cost of regular tuition, fees, housing and meals, thus creating a “space” and set of benefits for an incoming student. Each incoming student makes a similar arrangement at his or her home institution, creating a “space” and a set of benefits for you at your host institution. Abroad, you receive the same set of ISEP benefits covered by the fees that the outgoing student paid to their home (your host) university, when he or she swapped spots.

Due to differences in cost of living across the global exchange membership with ISEP programs, housing and meal benefits are always equivalent, but rarely, if ever equal. Students on exchange always receive housing for the full dates of the program, including 19-21 meals per week. Housing types and benefits at home versus host university are not equal in terms of the monetary amount due to variability in scales of economy, government subsidies, location, cost of living, etc. 

Direct-Enroll Programs

Students who participate in a Direct-Enroll program will be billed the following to their 澳门开奖直播 Student Account:

  • 澳门开奖直播 Tuition
  • Fees that are billed to the College by the student's program. This fee will be called the GEO Program Fee on the student's Lake Forest bill. This could include, but is not limited to:
    • Housing
    • Meals
    • Excursions
    • International Health Insurance
  • Study Abroad Administrative fee of $1,500
    • This fee is lowered to $1,000 for programs that do not include a meal plan/full meal stipend

Direct programs have their own tuition fee; however, 澳门开奖直播 covers the program's tuition on behalf of the student. Students are charged 澳门开奖直播 tuition which is subject to the College's financial aid.

Due to the variety of Direct programs, the GEO Program Fee (mentioned above) for Direct programs can vary from $1,000 to $9,500. Please reach out to the Director for GEO Program Fee estimates for programs of interest. Some Direct programs are more affordable than staying on campus, and some Direct programs are more expensive. Contact the Global Engagement Office will any questions.

Out-of-Pocket Costs

Not all costs of an off-campus program are billable by 澳门开奖直播 and students will have to pay directly out of pocket.

Out-of-pocket expenses can include, but are not limited to:

  • Program application fee & deposit
    • 澳门开奖直播 does not charge an application fee or a deposit fee for our internal off-campus application (called the GEO application); however, almost every program itself charges for both an application and a deposit fee.
    • Many programs' deposit fee is billed to the College and billed directly to the student's 澳门开奖直播 Student Account.
  • Airfare
    • A limited amount of airfare reimbursement awards (up to $750) will be available to students. Eligible students for the award will be determined by the level of financial need (such as Pell Grant recipients), as determined by theOffice of Financial Aid.
    • If a student is participating in a program from our program partner, Webster University, they may also be eligible for a travel award of $1000 to cover the cost of a flight.
  • Meals (if not included as part of the program and/or billable to 澳门开奖直播)
  • Housing (if not included as part of the program and/or billable to 澳门开奖直播)
    • Some programs require a refundable housing deposit; this deposit is not billed through the College.
  • Insurance (if required by the program and not billable to 澳门开奖直播)
  • Visa/Residence permit fees (if applicable)
  • Books/Course materials
  • Daily expenses

Working Abroad

Due to the host country's visa or residence permit regulations, students are usually not able to work while they are abroad. Students need to take into consideration when planning for a study abroad program that they most likely will not be able to work/earn an income while on a study abroad program.

Financial Aid

Financial aid can apply for approved semester programs.  See our Off-Campus Study and Financial Aid page for more guidance.
