Program Costs Colgate study groups: You will be invoiced for Colgate tuition plus a program fee that covers housing, field trips, insurance and other mandatory program-related charges. Please refer to your estimated student budget for a detailed breakdown of billable expenses.
You will be invoiced for Colgate tuition plus the cost of any room and board billed by your approved program sponsor. In rare instances, you will be billed for visa costs paid through the program provider. Colgate will pay your approved program sponsor on your behalf.
Extended study courses:
Please refer to the extended study estimated student budget
for a detailed breakdown of billable expenses on Extended Study courses. Additional expenses:
In addition to tuition and other charges billed by Colgate, you should also anticipate additional out-of-pocket expenses (e.g., meals not covered by board, daily incidentals, local transportation, books, vaccinations, airfare, etc.) when planning a budget for the semester. You can find estimates for out-of-pocket expenses on each Estimated Budget
or for Approved Programs by consulting the program provider’s website. If estimates for the semester you will be away are not yet available, check cost estimates for the previous year's program to get an idea of the likely costs.
Estimated expenses do not include discretionary personal spending on travel, souvenirs, entertainment and so on. Consider your own resources and spending habits as well as the cost of living in the country you will be studying in to finalize a realistic budget for the semester.
Please keep in mind that when all expenses are considered, a semester off-campus may cost more than a semester at Colgate, especially in high cost-of-living countries.
