Affiliate Program Costs

Affiliate programs charge a program fee which is inclusive of the affiliate's program fee, University of Minnesota Advising, Placement, Academic and Administrative Costs (APAAC), and international travel, health, and security insurance. Based on these additional services and benefits, the overall program cost may be higher than the affiliate's published program fee.

When calculating your affiliate program cost, use the following calculation: Affiliate Program Fee + APAAC + Int'l Health Insurance - Affiliate Fee Reduction = Total Program Cost.

The APAAC Covers

Fee Reductions

The Learning Abroad Center works closely with a select portfolio of education abroad organizations, called affiliates, that provide learning abroad opportunities for University of Minnesota students. The Learning Abroad Center negotiates with the affiliates for a fee reduction whenever possible. All affiliate fee reductions are entirely passed on to students.

Calculate the Total Program Cost You Will Be Charged

  1. Find your affiliate program fee by visiting your affiliate's fee website. 
  2. Find your affiliate program on the chart below: 2016-17 Costs | 2017-18 Costs
  3. Add the APAAC amount to the affiliate's published program fee (available on the affiliate's website).
  4. Consult the CISI policy web page for the most current monthly rate. Multiply that rate by the number of months you will be abroad. Add this amount to the total from step 1.
  5. Apply the fee reduction offered by your affiliate program, if applicable.
