Click here for the current tuition and fee schedule.  Note that the tuition charged for the GCP does not constitute “full-time”.  Students who take additional hours will be charged additional tuition according to the fee schedule outlined by the Office of the Bursar.

Both the summer portion of  the tuition and the program fee are added to students’ Summer Semester bills and due according to the deadlines listed on the Ohio University academic calendar.The three unit prep course taught the semester before the abroad portion of GCP will be billed during that semester’s deadline. 

By taking additional classes in Summer (during Session II if your GCP takes place in Session I, or vice versa), you can get the maximum value out of your tuition payment and earn a full load of courses during Summer Semester.

Other Costs

In addition to fees billed by Ohio University, students are responsible for the following costs:

  • Airfare to the program location
  • Most meals
  • Incidentals*
  • Housing during pre-trip week
  • Personal travel beyond the program

*Some meals may be provided – e.g., breakfast at hotels, lunches in student cafeterias, opening and closing banquets, etc.  In locations where providing breakfast and/or lunch is not logistically feasible, those locations will arrange supplemental meals and/or activities using the funds budgeted for those meals.
