Financing and Scholarship

Semester

Students who study abroad through Fairfield University for a semester on an approved program are charged regular Fairfield tuition. Housing and meal charges will vary by location. All Fairfield scholarships and aid, including federal funds, can be used towards study abroad expenses for one semester with the exceptions of athletic scholarships, tuition remission, FACHEX, tuition exchange and work-study monies. With the approval of the Associate Vice Provost for Global Strategy, students with Modern Language, International Business, and International Studies majors may use Fairfield University financial aid for two semesters abroad on select programs.
Students who study abroad on a semester/year program are required to submit a $1,000 fee to Fairfield University. This fee is part of the total tuition cost. The Fairfield University Office of the Bursar will bill all Fairfield students studying abroad prior to the start of each term. The Monthly Tuition Payment Plan is available.

Summer

Fees and billing for short-term programs vary. Please see here the program-specific pricing. Students who wish to use financial aid during the summer are encouraged to connect with the Fairfield University Office of Financial Aid to explore the possibility of having their financial aid package readjusted to include their summer abroad.
