Costs and Scholarships

How will you pay for your experience?

When working with the study abroad office on one of our programs, a semester abroad does not have to be more expensive than a semester here at Clark!

Costs

Clark Approved Programs:
  • Students accounts will be billed Clark tuition directly by Clark for the semester away
  • Students will be billed by program for housing or non-tuition fees such as meal stipends, local travel, deposits or insurance.
  • Clark will pay program’s tuition/academic fees
  • Students accounts will be billed  $1,000 for EACH term away
  • A $100 application fee will be due at the time of application (instructions for paying this fee are provided with the application; this will not be billed to your student account)
  • Failure to satisfy financial obligations to Clark University or the host institution by the due date may result in withdrawal from the program.
  • Students are responsible for all personal expenses while away. There might be fees for using a gym, clubs, computers, laundry, transportation, books, cell phones, etc. These fees vary from year to year and we recommend that you check the website of your host institution to see if further information is available. Any additional expenses related to individual courses, such as travel, are also your responsibility.
