Cost and Billing Information

Cost

It is a common misconception that all study abroad opportunities are beyond many students' budgets. The truth is, there are learning abroad options that cost the same as or even less than studying on campus. With proper planning, the Learning Abroad Center can help a student find a program that fits into any budget. Compare the costs of being abroad to on-campus costs.

Scholarships and Financial Aid

The University has more than $500,000 in study abroad scholarships available to University of Minnesota Students. Visit our Scholarships and Financial Aid web pages for more information on what is available and how to apply.

Billing

Learning Abroad Center program fees are posted to your student's University of Minnesota student account. When bills are generated while students are on study abroad programs, students receive an email notice in their University-assigned email accounts with a link to view online the total amount due and payment due date(s) in student accounts.

If a student is attending an academic or calendar year program, the amount billed to the student account is for the current semester portion of the bill only. The amount due reflects any previous payments (which includes deposits).

Students can view their student account online anytime and anywhere they have Internet access at the One Stop Student website. Under the "Pay the University" category, click on the "Student Account" quick link. Enter the X.500 Internet user ID and password.
