Each Global Opportunities program consists of two types of costs: billable and non-billable. Billable costs are the items that will appear on a student’s Temple account prior to departing from the program. Payment for these items will occur through TUPay and follow the Temple billing schedule. Non-billable costs are costs that students are responsible for paying out of pocket, prior to and during the length of their programs.

Students are encouraged to utilize the Bursar’s tuition calculator to confirm their tuition rates for the term they will be away. Students should also consult Student Financial Services to determine which aspects of their financial aid package may be applied to their bill to offset the costs of studying away.

Billable costs include:

  • Temple tuition for 6-9 credit hours, dependent upon opting into the additional internship course
  • University services fee
  • Global Opportunities program fee*

Non-billable costs include, but are not limited to:

  • Passport
  • Visa
  • Round trip airfare
  • Meals
  • Daily transportation
  • Daily expenses
  • Cell phone rentals

*The Global Opportunities program fee generally covers the student’s accommodations, pre-departure and on-site orientations, some transportation, excursions, and co-curriculars. Should student’s opt into the 6 week internship, there will be an increase to their respective program fee to cover the accommodations associated with the internship, the internship placement, and professional development opportunities.
