  • International Insurance - CISI Insurance (Note: this is included in the program fee of UMD Faculty-Led Programs. Insurance for all other programs is billed to your UMD account.)
  • Passport
  • International Visas
  • Personal expenses 
  • Airfare (included with some UMD Faculty-led program fees)
  • Housing (Note: this is included with UMD Faculty-led program fees. Housing for other programs may be billed directly to your UMD account, check with our office).
  • Meals


A cost estimate is linked to each program web page. If you do not see a cost estimate for the term you intend to go abroad, the cost has not yet been determined. Please note cost estimates and fees may change depending on international economic factors. Our office delays the posting of final fees until enrollments, inflation, and exchange rates are determined in order to provide the most accurate pricing. We strive to post final fees by October 1 for Spring programs, March 1 for May/Summer programs, and May 1 for Fall and Academic year programs.
