Additional Information
The above estimated total expenses are intended to help plan and prepare for the program.  Total expenses will vary by student and are subject to change depending on currency fluctuation, past-participant reports, university recommendations, and personal spending habits. Not all students will incur all the expenses above. Please contact Rutgers Global–Study Abroad about estimated expenses as well as ways to reduce expenses while abroad.

If you will be awarded scholarships, grants, or financial aid through Rutgers, these awards will be posted to your Student Account according to the normal disbursement schedule after you confirm your attendance. Some non-billable items may be due prior to the release of your semester bill and your financial aid, so students should be prepared to pay these expenses in advance.
