Financing

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 deposit to Fairfield University. This deposit is part of the total tuition cost. The deposits for Fall, Spring and Year programs are due on March 1.
Summer
Students who study abroad during the summer must have their full payment paid by March 1.
Fees and billing for short term programs vary. Please visit the program specific website for information. 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.
Faculty Led Programs
Students who participate on a faculty led program can find financing information directly on the programs brochure page. Students who wish to use financial aid for a faculty led program 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 costs associated with the program.
