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.
