Tuition & Fees for Study Abroad

Study abroad participants are charged the same rates that a traditional Bryant University student would be assessed if they were studying on-campus, unless the total charge at the host institution exceeds the comparable charges at Bryant University.

Financial aid you receive may be applied to approved study abroad programs through Bryant, with the confirmation of full-time enrollment. (Athletic scholarships can be an exception to this, and should be checked with the Financial Aid Office.)

Meal plans are not always offered; if a plan is offered, you will be billed through Bryant University and will be charged the equivalent meal plan rate for the number of meals you're being provided abroad.

In regards to the rooming fees, if a student participates in a Bryant approved program through one of our program providers, they'll be charged the equivalent Bryant rate for housing based on the accommodations they receive in the country where they're studying abroad. However, certain programs offer housing options that are not comparable to on-campus living at Bryant. In these situations a student is responsible to pay the difference between a single townhouse rate and the cost for the housing by the host institution.

Regular and supplemental health insurance are also required for every student. Additional fees will apply as defined by individual partner programs. You are responsible for transportation and incidental costs.

Per-semester costs for study abroad participants during 2017-2018 academic year

  • Tuition: $20,850
  • Room: $4,518-$5,903.50
  • Meal Plan: $2,7973-$3,179
  • Additional Fees: $2,000-$5,000 (varies based on program location)

* The University will pay up to the cost of the single townhouse rate in housing costs to the host institution. If a student chooses a housing option that exceeds that cost, the student will  be billed and is responsible for paying the difference.

The tuition rate is the cost of a traditional semester of study at Bryant University.  If the tuition at the host institution exceeds the cost of Bryant’s tuition, the student is required to pay the difference. The room rate depends upon the type of housing that a study abroad participant receives. If the participant is housed in a room that is typical of the Bryant University on-campus dorm-style living, the fee is $4,518 (double room) or $5,903.50 (single room).  However, in certain circumstances, participants are given the option to live in a facility that is typical of the Bryant University on-campus townhouse-style living and those students are charged at the higher rate of $5,496 (double) or $5,903.50 (single).  Additionally, certain programs offer housing options that are not comparable to on-campus living at Bryant.  In these situations a student is responsible to pay the difference between a single town-house rate and the cost for the housing by the host institution.  Additionally, there may be services offered by the host institution that is not typical of Bryant University on-campus living.  In these situations, the host institution may assess a surcharge to cover additional services that are offered with the housing (i.e. telephone, internet, bed linens, cleaning services, etc.).

Any supplemental fees not limited to housing surcharges or meal plan fees may not be on your initial bill for study abroad. You will be notified via your Bryant University email address that an updated Electronic Bill (E-Bill) is ready for viewing.
