Affiliate Program Costs

Affiliate programs charge a program cost which is inclusive of the affiliate's program cost, 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 cost.

How to Calculate the Total Program Cost

  1. Find your affiliate program cost by visiting your affiliate's fee website. 
  2. Find your affiliate program on the chart below: 2017–18 Costs | 2018–19 Costs
  3. Add the APAAC amount to the affiliate's published program cost (available on the affiliate's website).
  4. Multiply the International Health Insurance rate by the number of months you will be abroad. 
  5. Apply the fee reduction offered by your affiliate program, if applicable.

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.
