Rutgers Global–Study Abroad can help you figure out how to pay for your study abroad experience, and in some cases the cost can be less than or equal to a semester in New Jersey. There are also scholarships and financial aid to help offset these costs:
Deposit and program fee
Room and board
Everyday provisions and supplies
Please note that costs for study abroad will be paid directly to Rutgers, based on billing and refund cycles at Rutgers. Academic calendars abroad may be different than ours is, and your semester abroad may start earlier or later than Rutgers, so your term bill may arrive long after you’ve started classes overseas or even before you leave the United States. There are other costs that vary by program. You’re responsible for ensuring your bills are paid on time and to the right recipient, but we can help you plan ahead to ensure you’ll have adequate funding.
