Deposit, Service Charges & Program Fees

Deposit & Service Charges

To secure your space on a program, students are required to complete the Study Abroad application and pay the deposit early, as programs tend to fill up before the application deadline.

The Study Abroad deposit is required as a part of the application process. It is a non-refundable deposit, due within 21 days creating your Study Abroad application, but no later than the UF Study Abroad program application deadline (whichever comes first). Please meet with Allison Costa, Study Abroad Financial Aid Advisor to discuss using your financial aid for study abroad BEFORE paying the non-refundable deposit.

We are unable to secure your participation in the program until the deposit is paid and your Study Abroad application is approved. Failure to pay the deposit by the due date will result in cancellation from the program.

Please review the table below for specific deposit/service charge amounts.

Program Fees

Our UF Sponsored and Exchange programs have online brochures that include budgets that show the estimated costs that students can expect to spend for a given study abroad program.  Some of the expenses listed on these budgets will include items that are payable directly to the International Center while UF local fees will be payable to the University of Florida Financial Services.  Additionally, we estimate the costs for other expenses such as airfare, meals and other miscellaneous expenses that are related to studying abroad.  Students will need to double-check their UF Official email address and their student account in MyUFL to make sure all of these fees have been paid.  If you have a question about which Items are payable to the International Center, please contact your Study Abroad Advisor.
