Pro-Tip: Understanding Your Program Fee

The Education Abroad Program Fee is divided into two or three charges:
  • IC – Instructional Costs/Tuition
  • SA Non-Resident Fee IC – Non-Resident Fee (if applicable)
  • OT – Health Insurance plus Housing and Meals (if included in the program fee)
Education Abroad scholarships are generally applied as a credit rather than receiving a check; most scholarships are given as a reduction in the overall program fee. If you received an Education Abroad-specific scholarship, you will see it applied to your bill as 'IC-Adj' or 'Education Abroad Schlp-General' depending on the source of the scholarship funds.

Education Abroad programs are not eligible for payment plans.

While students pay their program cost directly to CU Boulder and Education Abroad pays the program organization, there may be additional fees that the student must pay the program organization directly. These may include: application fees, deposits, course fees, additional instructional costs, special excursions and all or partial housing costs.

Contact the EA Finance Team with any billing questions.

Cancel for Any Reason Insurance

Education Abroad recommends that students carefully consider purchasing Cancel/Interrupt for Any Reason insurance after they have been accepted into an Education Abroad Program. Cancel/Interrupt for Any Reason (CFAR/IFAR) insurance can help safeguard an investment in an education abroad experience.
